Worthing High School strives to ensure our resources are used in the best way possible to provide a high quality teaching and learning environment for all our students. We work to make savings, spend our funds prudently and look to maximise the resources we invest in teaching and learning. Maximising efficiency is essential, our Governors and the Headteacher determine how to secure better value for money across all procurement and service delivery decisions.
Each School is required by law (The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012), to make the following information available on their school website.
The amount of funding the school is allocated from the Pupil Premium grant in respect of the current academic year plus the following information:
- Details of how it is intended that the allocation will be spent.
- Details of how the previous academic year's allocation was spent.
- The effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils for whom the funding was allocated.
Each January the DFE publishes school income and spending data, for the previous financial year, for all Local Authority maintained secondary schools in England. The data is published in Performance Tables alongside attainment data. The data lets schools and the wider public compare how far schools are achieving value for money across all their spending and ask questions about how they can use their resources more effectively.

As an Academy, Worthing High School is required to provide full accounts for each financial year ended 31st August. Our accounts are also filed at Companies House. Copies of our accounts can also be found below.
Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium 2017-18
The Year 7 Literacy and Numeracy Catch Up Premium has been offered by the government as a commitment to provide additional funding to schools. This is aimed at each Year 7 student who did not achieve the expected standard in their Key Stage 2 national tests in reading and/or mathematics (a scaled score of 99 or below). The purpose of this funding is to enable Worthing High to deliver additional support, such as individual tuition or intensive support in small groups, for those students who need it most. This does not mean an individual entitlement to the funding, rather that the school has the discretion to spend this money to ensure that identified students are able to make the necessary progress.
Proposed Expenditure for 2017/18
We have currently identified 61 students eligible for the catch up premium in the academic year 2017-18. This is made up from:
Both Literacy and Numeracy
The allocation of approximately £20,600 is being spent in a variety of ways to help support the students make progress with their English and Maths.
Small group interventions for Literacy and Numeracy
Reading, phonic and handwriting sessions
Literacy and Numeracy co-ordinator roles
