Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to the main school  allocation. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM),  the number of children of service families, and the number of children who have been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 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 to be 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 pupils premium was spent in the last financial year in our school, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.
