The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and children of service children personnel.
Please see below to see how much Pupil Premium money we receive, how this money is spent and the impact of this.
If you would like further details of the ways in which we support children eligible for Pupil Premium funding, please read our Pupil Premium Policy below or contact Mrs Hamilton or Mrs Buckley (Pupil Premium Lead) via the school office.
