Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. In our school, the pupil premium money is aimed at children in Reception Class to Year 6 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been registered for FSM in the past 6 years. The fund also covers children in care who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. There is also a smaller amount of funding for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.
