At Seaham High School, our underlying principle is that school should support all young
people to make progress and reach their potential regardless of background or starting
point. We ensure that student choices are not limited by self-belief, opportunity or
circumstance. We know that quality first teaching improves the attainment and progress of
our most vulnerable students and as a school, we invest greatly in this. Our bespoke CPD
(continuous professional development) programme provides regular training opportunities
for all staff to enable them to create high quality and supportive learning environments for
all groups of students.
What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is a grant is an additional funding source allocated to schools specifically
to support disadvantaged students. Schools have the freedom to spend this allocation in a
way they think will best support raising the achievement of students who have been in
receipt of free school meals (FSM) within the last six years. Additionally, Pupil Premium Plus
(PP+) is for students who are or have previously been looked after children (LACs). The
school receives this as additional ‘ring-fenced’ funding for these students. To be eligible for
this PP+ funding these students need to have been looked after continuously by the Local
Authority for more than six months.
The total amount of Pupil Premium funding received by Seaham High School for 2019-20 is
