The Pupil Premium is funding from the EFA (Education Funding Agency) that is allocated to children who: 

  • have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years; 
  • have been looked after for 1 day or more; 
  • are adopted. 

The Vale Academy is proud of the impact that this funding has on student attainment and progress on the personal, social and emotional development of these students. The academy is committed to developing this programme and continues to explore new and innovative ways of improving life chances for all students. Available below are evaluation reports detailing how we have spent this funding.
