Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is a grant given to the academy by the Department for Education (DfE) to provide extra support for those children who receive free school meals, along with children in care and also those who have parents in the armed forces.

If you feel that your own child may be eligible for Free School Meals or falls into one of the categories listed above and is not in receipt of the pupil premium fund, please contact the academy and we will support you with how to apply for this funding.

In 2018-19 AHA received £935 for those students eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), £1900 for Looked After Child (LAC) or those adopted from care, and £300 for a service child. The academy also receives £1,900 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following: 

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

FSM is the only pupil level measure of deprivation available to schools and the link between FSM eligibility and school underachievement is very strong nationally. Schools receive Pupil Premium funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment difference between them and their peers.
