Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

This is money from Central Government paid to school based on the number of children in the school who are either currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or have been eligible for FSM in the last 6 years. In addition children whose parents work in the Forces and children who are ‘Looked After Children’ are eligible. Currently the additional funding is worth £1300 per pupil for the year.

How is Pupil Premium money spent and how is this monitored?

The money is allocated by the school to initiatives that are designed to support eligible pupils to reach their full potential both academically and socially. Barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and as a school we will plan support in a variety of ways to support individuals appropriately. The school decides how to use the funding and are held accountable for how it has been used.

How do I know if my child is entitled to Pupil Premium Funding?

We would like to encourage as many parents a possible to apply for FSM if you think you would be eligible. Children in reception and years 1 and 2 automatically get a lunch free, however in order to get the Pupil Premium funding school needs you to register for Free School Meals. It doesn’t matter if your child doesn’t have the lunch! Remember in addition to the school being able to use the additional funding to help your child’s achievement you will also be eligible for a school sweatshirt.
