Pupil and catch up premiums


The Local Authority funds schools to support their SEN provision. Each individual school receives their own SEN funding from the Local Authority. Each school identifies specific interventions to use this fund and their impact is monitored and reviewed by the Academy.

We, in the The Academy at Shotton Hall, use our professional judgement to ensure that the funding is distributed to have the greatest impact on our SEND pupils. We regularly review this at school level to ensure maximum effectiveness and efficiency. We strive to ensure equity, transparency and clarity within the academy for the monies spent on all learners and their needs.
