The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
The funding is now based on the “Ever 6” system which means that as well as pupils who are currently on free school meals, schools receive funding for any young person who has been in receipt of free school meals in the last six years.
The total funding provided in the Pupil Premium allocation to the Cornelius Vermuyden School for the financial year 2016-2017 was £284,240 (304 students)
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.
Year 7 Catch-up Funding
In 2013, the Government made a commitment to provide annual additional educational funding to schools for each Year 7 pupil who had not achieved Level 4 in reading and/or mathematics at Key Stage 2.
In recent years, this has changed to any student that failed to reach the ‘Expected Standard’ in their KS2 SATs test. The Cornelius Vermuyden School received £13,500 Catch-Up Funding in 2016-2017
The document below sets out the review of spending for 2016-17 together with the planned spending of both sets of funding for 2017-2018.

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.READ MORE
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.READ MORE

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.
