Pupil Premium Information
The pupil premium is additional funding given to schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is thought to be the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those who are not eligible, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The allocation of Pupil Premium is based on the number of pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools also receive pupil premium funding for children of service personnel or those who fall into one of the following categories:
- The pupil has been looked after for 1 day or more
- The pupil has been adopted from care
- The pupil has left care under:
- a special guardianship order
- a residence order o a child arrangement order
We are committed to ensuring that Pupil Premium funding is used to:
- Raise attainment and promote social skills
- Narrow or close the gap between the achievement of the identified pupils and their peers
- Raise pupil attainment through the provision and implementation of a variety of educational support programmes. Focus on and address the underlying inequalities between the identified pupils and their peers with regard to pupil well-being and academic development.
