What is the Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is a grant paid to the school from the government. It is allocated to the following disadvantaged pupils:
- Children registered for Free School Meals (FSM)
- Children who have been eligible for FSM in the last 6 years (Ever 6)
- Looked after Children
- Previously Looked After Children (Previously Looked After Children is a term used for anyone who has left the local-authority care and has since been adopted, placed under a special guardianship order or has a child arrangement order).
The grant is to help raise their attainment and achievement and to afford them opportunities in line with their peers.
In addition to the aforementioned funding, the school also receives a ‘Service Children Premium’. This funding is to support children whose parents are members of the Armed Forces, or have left the Armed Forces within the last six years Please inform the school if one parent is either in the Armed Forces or has been in the last six years.
