Pupil Premium and Catch-Up funding
We strongly believe that a measure of success in any community is how well those who are disadvantaged are supported to achieve their personal best. Through helping our Pupil Premium students succeed and become citizens who make positive contributions to their community, we are playing a small but significant part in making Britain a fairer and better society for all.
Previous year’s strategies:
Year 7 Catch-Up Funding
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium gives schools additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve the expected standard in reading or maths at the end of key stage 2 (KS2).

16 to 19 Tuition Fund
The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) have provided additional one year funding for schools to mitigate the disruption to learning arising from coronavirus (COVID-19).
John Masefield High School and Sixth Form Centre (JMHS) have been allocated £953 from this funding stream.
JMHS will use this grant to provide one to one tuition to disadvantaged students including LAC and SEND pupils taking A level subjects. The aim of the tuition is to fill in the gaps caused by lockdown in GCSE subjects that are being continued to Advanced level. JMHS already employ suitably qualified tutors to deliver this tuition.
It is anticipated that JMHS will spend in excess of £5,000 on this tutoring.
