What Is The Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium is additional funding allocated to all schools in England to support disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. This budget includes pupils who are currently entitled to free school meals, have been entitled to free school meals in the past six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’), children who are cared for or adopted from care and children whose parents are in the armed forces.

How Should The Money Be Spent?
It is entirely up to individual schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, however there is an expectation that schools can prove the impact this money has had on its disadvantaged pupils. It is imperative that as a school we fully understand each of our disadvantaged pupils and know exactly what they need to help them to ‘be the best they can be’ in their learning. Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement provides an outline of our approach ensuring we achieve maximum impact with the Pupil Premium grant. Our Approach to Pupil Premium document will give you the detail behind our strategy.
