Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil premium funding is allocated to schools for children of statutory age from low income families who are known in school to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), children in care who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months and children registered at the school whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

This funding is provided by the government to address potential inequalities in achievement and attainment for vulnerable children and ensure provision of opportunities in line with their peers.

In 2018 – 2018 this included children eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure) as well as parents serving in the armed forces at any point in the last 3 years ( known as the Ever 3 measure).  It also includes children who were adopted from care.

Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held accountable for how we have used this funding to support achievement for pupils from low income families and we are required to publish details about this spending on our website.

This will ensure that parents and others are made aware of the impact of the support and opportunities delivered as a result of the funding.
