Pupil Premium

The aim of Pupil Premium, a Government initative that is additional to main school funding, is to help address the  underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their peers by ensuring that funding, to tackle disadvantage, reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to support children on the Free Schools Register - those that claim free school meals, or have claimed free school meals in the last 6 years. Schools also receive funding for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order. There is also a smaller amount allocated for children of service families.

 It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils on the Pupil Premium register. Please see below for information regarding how the Pupil Premium has been spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.
