Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?


Since April 2011, the Government has provided funding to specifically support:


* children from low income families who are eligible for free school meals

* any child who has been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years

* children from armed forces families

* children who have been looked after by the local authority i.e. supported by foster carers or in care for more than 6 months


It is expected that this extra funding helps schools to 'close the gap' in achievement between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.


Why do we need Pupil Premium funding?


We want all our pupils to achieve their best and this funding allows us to provide additional support through academic interventions or through social, emotional or well-being support.
