The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a specific grant. The Pupil Premium is primarily aimed at Reception to Year 11 pupils who are from low income families and are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been registered for FSM in the past 6 years. The funding also covers children in care aged 4-15yrs. From 2014, the Pupil Premium was allocated to children who have been in care for 1 day or more and those who are adopted. Schools also receive funding for pupils who are children of service personnel.
In 2017-18, the Pupil Premium allocation was £1320 per pupil.
The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils and narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
School may also use the Pupil Premium funding to provide appropriate support for the well being of pupils it may deem vulnerable for whatever reason, both socially and emotionally.
