Pupil premium

What is pupil premium?

Schools receive special funding to invest in support for more disadvantaged pupils, so that all children have the best chance possible of reaching their academic potential.  Introduced in 2011, pupil premium funding is based on the number of pupils in a school who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM').  Schools also receive funding for some other children, for instance looked after children or children of service personnel.  The criteria are not necessarily the same every year.

Like other schools, Ashton publishes the amount of funding it has received, details of how it has spent that funding, and reports what difference it has made. Below is the information for this academic year.
