Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

 ‘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 peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.’ (DFE Website)

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

 Mr Hawkins, Mrs Coulson or Mrs Avena are available for a confidential meeting where they can offer further advice as to what you may be eligible for and how the pupil premium funding could help your child.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy has been developed using published documents such as The Sutton Trust - EEF Teaching and Learning Toolkit.
