Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools address the gap in outcomes between children receiving free school meals (FSM), and for children who have been continuously in care for more than six months, and their more advantaged peers.

Class teachers, subject leaders and raising achievement teachers are all aware of which children are eligible for Pupil Premium and monitor their progress carefully. The senior leadership team analyses the difference Pupil Premium funding is making to the outcomes for pupils.

The government believes that schools should decide how the pupil premium is allocated and spent, since it is felt that they are best placed to analyse and decide what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. From September 2012 schools have been required to publish on line information about how they have used the Premium. This is to ensure that parents and others are fully aware of the attainment of the pupils covered.

Free School Meals

Additional funds for the school and families:

Parents who receive certain benefits may be entitled to financial support with school trips, clubs etc. If you  get

  • Income Support

  • Universal Credit

then the school can get extra funding called the Pupil Premium.

Registering only takes a few minutes and could make a significant difference to the funds available to school as well as more opportunities for your child. If your child is in Y3-Y6, this will also entitle you to free school meals!

Alternatively, you can provide us with some details to allow us to check your family's eligibility on your behalf. All we require is the Date of Birth and National Insurance number of both parents/guardians, and we can check this for you. Please speak to a member of the school admin team if you would like to find out more.
