Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities of children that are disadvantaged and this funding reaches the pupils who need it the most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for :
  • Children of statutory school age from low-income families who are 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.

  • Children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Historically, pupils receiving FSM make slower progress and achieve lower results than those children who do not receive FSM. This is a national issue. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to target support to ‘narrow the gap’.

Pupil Premium Strategy Reviews take place on an annual basis every September, with monitoring taking place on a termly basis.
