Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium and Catch-up Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding received by Broadland High Ormiston Academy to help improve the attainment of disadvantaged students. Students are eligible for Pupil Premium funding if:

  • they are currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been eligible in the last 6 years (Ever 6 FSM)
  • they have been designated as a Looked After Child (LAC) for more than 6 months, including children who have now left care (for example children who have been adopted)
  • they are a child whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces

The funding that Broadland High Ormiston Academy receives for each eligible student is as follows:

  • Free School Meals child: £955 per academic year
  • Looked After Child: £2345 per academic year
  • Serving Armed Forces child: £310 per academic year

If you would like to check to see if you are eligible for free school meals, please visit the Norfolk County Council website to apply online. Alternatively, you can print out and fill in this form (also available on the NCC website); your completed form should either be returned to the main academy office or sent to: Free School Meals, Norfolk County Council, Floor 8, County Hall, Norwich, NR1 2DL.

Our Pupil Premium strategy document, with details of how our Pupil Premium funding is spent and the impact that this has had on improving the attainment of our disadvantaged students, can be downloaded from the files area, below.

Prior to 2020, all schools also received funding through the Catch-up Premium for students who did not meet the expected standard in Maths or English in Year 6. This has now been replaced by the catch-up funding provided to address students’ needs arising from absence during the pandemic. You can find details of our spending plans below.
