What is Pupil Premium and who is it for?
Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils.
It is hoped that pupil premium will address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most and is used to tackle any disadvantage.
There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:
- Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
- Looked after children
- Armed forces children
We believe that all our pupils should receive the highest quality teaching experience.
The funding aims to assist in supporting them with their education ensuring that external factors do not impact on their ability to make progress.
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of Pupil Premium interventions at one time. The groups and individuals identified for support may change over the academic year.
