As of June 2020, the Year 7 catch-up premium was discontinued. The Department for Education has said that pupils will instead be provided for under the low prior attainment factor as part of the national funding formula.

Pupil Premium Grant

The sum of money allocated is a large figure which reflects the significant impact that it should be having on the performance and outcomes of the young people who are targeted by the funding.

  1. The pupil premium funding is allocated for the financial, rather than academic year
  2. It's allocated based on the numbers of eligible pupils recorded on your roll in the January census
  3. For academies and non-maintained special schools, they receive the money directly from the ESFA

Group Pupil Premium per pupil 2020-21
Pupils in year groups 7 to 11 recorded as 'ever 6 FSM' £955
Looked after children (LAC) £2,345
Post-LAC £2,345
*Pupils with parents in the regular armed forces (see 'service premium') £310

The pupil premium strategy will be externally reviewed on 29th April 2021, undertaken by Juniper Education. The school will complete an internal review in September 2021

Catch-Up Premium

The government is providing funding to cover a one-off universal catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

It aims to support pupils to catch up for lost learning so schools can meet the curriculum expectations for the next academic year.

The school will receive a total of £80 per pupil (for year 7 to year 11).

the immersive room

We are able to offer a unique experience to learners, embracing them in an immersive environment that inspires creativity and captures imaginations. Whether the curriculum is focusing on Tudor or Roman times, Space, Underwater, or anything else you can think of, the Immersive Room will take you there.


Uniform & pe kit

Wearing uniform is obligatory; all pupils must comply with the school's uniform code. Not only does the uniform and smartness of out pupils add to the school's image and prestige in the wider community, but it contributes to a business-like atmosphere conductive to achievement.



We place a strong emphasis on pupils participating in activities beyond their regular timetable. These activities develop pupils' social skills, as well as their particular talents and interests. Involvement in such activities also creates a more rounded individual that future employers and colleges look out for.

National association of
Able Children in England

Cornelius Vermuyden are an official member of NACE (National association of Able Children in England).

Not only does this partnership support our development of our highest achieving pupils, it supports the development of every pupil in the school. We are committed to ensuring that a high level of challenge exists in the classroom in every lesson and to help potential convert to success and happiness for our pupils. We are firm believers that "rising tides lift all ships" and that if all students have a daily diet of challenging experiences at school and beyond, then this will help support their educational and personal development as learners and as people. Yet, as our 2016 GCSE results showed, those who come to us classed as more able achieve incredible results – for example, Callum Cuthbert leaving the school with 11 A* grades is an achievement that is not just well above the national average in terms of progress and achievement, but one that should be celebrated in terms of the school's work with its high achieving pupils.

However, here at Cornelius Vermuyden, we promote the ethos that all children must be given access to a positive mindset in terms of their learning. The message is clear; all young people are capable of reaching any goal they set their mind to if they are challenged and show a positive attitude to self - improvement . Cornelius Vermuyden places challenge and the importance of a 'growth mindset' at the heart of its teaching and learning vision for our pupils and our association with NACE is supporting this commitment to all pupils at the school.
