Pupil premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding.
It is allocated according to the number of students on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), ‘Looked After` (in care) and a smaller amount for the children of service personnel.
Funding was extended to all students in receipt of FSM for the last six years in 2012. If you feel that your child is eligible for the Pupil Premium but don’t currently claim for Free School Meals, please click here to access the Free School Meals information and link to the application website.
Pupil Premium is to be used to help students from families as described above, primarily to raise the attainment and close the gap between these students and those not entitled to this support. Nationally these students achieve at a level significantly below those not entitled on all key indicators. It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made. Schools are held accountable for these decisions.
