Pupil & Catch-up Premium

Overton Grange School aims to provide opportunities for its students that enable them to play an active role in the twenty-first century. As members of a co-educational comprehensive school, students have full access to and experience of the curriculum regardless of race, class, gender, physical ability and religious belief. The school promotes a sense of self-esteem, responsibility and tolerance in young people. It values and challenges the individual so that they achieve the highest levels of attainment whatever their starting point.

The Pupil Premium is therefore a key resource for ensuring the realisation of this inclusive and aspirational ethos. The nature of the issue makes it essential that personalised rather than blanket support is provided for students. We recognise that not all students who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged or underachieving. We also recognise that not all students who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any individual the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

The Pupil Premium Grant is paid to schools for students who are recorded as:

  • eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been eligible in the past 6 years (FSM6)

  • children who are Looked After (CLA)

  • children who are post-Looked After from Local Authority care (PLAA)

  • having a parent currently serving in the Armed Forces or who have served in the past six years (Ever 6 Service Child).
