Pupil Premium

We are extremely proud of our students at Falmouth and continue to strive for the very best for all our students especially our disadvantaged students. Our mission is to put our students first, and all our work is designed to improve the outcomes and life chances of our students especially our disadvantaged students by making effective use of the Pupil Premium funding the school receives.

The Pupil Premium is additional funding schools in England receive to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The ‘disadvantaged pupilscategory includes pupils who were eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point during the last six years and children looked after (CLA).

At Falmouth School we believe that every pupil should have the opportunity to flourish both in their academic and non-academic endeavours. To this end we constantly seek out best practice in education to ensure that we are making effective use of the funding. We have invested the majority of our funding into:

  • Continually improving the quality of teaching and learning
  • Implementing our Framework for Improving Pupil Progress.   

Our Pupil Premium Strategy document states our existing strategy for this academic year in terms of the activities we currently carryout and the activities we wish to explore over the current academic year.

The Pupil Premium Statement provides details of the activities we use to close the gaps for our disadvantaged students.

The Pupil Premium Impact statement provides an analysis of the data from RAISEonline document (provided by the Department for Education) which shows the measurable impact our work at Falmouth School is having on improving the outcomes for our disadvantaged pupils.
