Pupil Premium funding


The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families.  This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

The purpose of the funding is to ensure children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM), or those who have been in receipt over the past six years, achieve well alongside the rest of the school cohort

Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school
