Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to: the number of pupils on the school roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM); according to the number of children of service families (a smaller amount), and for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for six months or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past six years.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium was spent in the last academic year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.
