What is it?
The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low income families. Funding is based on children registered for a free school meal and children that have been in care for more than six months.
Why has it been introduced?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, we are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the Premium.
Please see the attached file to take a look at how we have spent our Pupil Premium this year.
