Eligibility Criteria Q&A

Caedmon College Whitby receives additional funding in terms of the Pupil Premium to help us in our ambition to ensure every student in our College can be successful.

All members of our staff and governors accept responsibility for all learners and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the College environment.

The College is committed to ‘narrowing the gap’ for vulnerable students and the Pupil Premium will follow a vital part of that process. Each student must be able to make a contribution to the life of the College through full participation in both the academic and extracurricular lives of the College.

At present the level of premium received for the ever-6 FSM measure is £935 per student. The level of Pupil Premium received for service children is £300 and for those who are ‘looked after’ children or children adopted from care, the College received £1900.

The Colleges Pupil Premium allocation for the academic year in 2013/14 was £89,650.00. 2014/15 was £193,000.00. Caedmon College Whitby received a total of £192,078.00 for the academic period of September 2015 to August 2016. For the period 2016/17 the College has an allocation of £169,449.25.

Provision will be made through:

  • facilitating students’ access to education
  • facilitating students’ access to the curriculum
  • providing alternative support and a range of tailored interventions
  • ensuring students have access to enrichment activities to support learning.

The funding allocated for this academic year has been used to support the provision of:
