The Government’s Pupil Premium programme is aimed at ensuring students from lower income families have access to educational opportunities to help them to achieve their full potential. Each year the school receives a sum of money for all eligible students who are registered for free school meals, in Local Authority Care or is the child of Service personnel.
Pupil premium will continue to be based on ever 6 free school meals, whereby pupils recorded as eligible for free school meals at the time of the October census, or at any point in the previous six years, will attract pupil premium funding.
The pupil premium for 2022 to 2023 will include pupils recorded in the October 2021 school census who have had a recorded period of FSM eligibility since January 2016, as well as those first recorded as eligible in October 2021.
Our Pupil Premium strategy is available to view, below.
Your child may be able to get free school meals if you get any of the following:
We aim to use our Pupil Premium funding to bring lasting academic and personal benefit to those students who are on ‘Free School Meals’ or who are ‘Looked after in care’. The way we chose to invest this additional funding reflected the advice we had received from the Department for Education and from the Sutton Trust.

We are very pleased to be able to offer you the opportunity for some students to attend our summer school at Mossley Hollins High School during August 2022. Our summer will take place from Monday 1st August until Friday 5th August. The main intent of the Summer School is to improve the transition between primary and secondary school, ensuring that students are prepared to begin their Mossley Hollins journey. Students will have a daily lesson in maths and English. As well as this vital learning, we also want students to get to know their peers with team building in multi- sports sessions. Some Spanish and Art will also be on the timetable.
