Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to all schools for children of statutory school age from low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non- mainstream settings. This also applies to children who at any time over the last 6 years have been eligible for FSM.in addition it applies to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and to adopted children and children whose parents are in currently serving in the armed forces.

 

From 2011 the number of grants available to schools was considerably reduced and as such the overall   budget was also less. The Pupil Premium funding enables the school to maintain its high level of support in a number of established areas that support, in particular vulnerable families, but also all of our school community. Pupil Premium funding varies from year to year according to the number of Free School Meals (FSM).  Therefore it is crucial that parents entitled to FSM register their children and notify the school if any of the other criteria noted above applies to them.

 

Schools are free to allocate the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we are held accountable for how we use this additional funding.
