Pupil Premium Explained
In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). This money is allocated to improve pupil attainment and to help overcome any barriers to learning. Nationally, the statistics show that pupils who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers. Pupil Premium Funding is awarded for any child who has been in receipt of FSM at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6).
The aim of this money is to try to close the achievement gap between pupil premium and all others. In making provision for disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive FSM will be disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children who are disadvantaged are registered or qualify for FSM. The school therefore allocates the Pupil Premium Funding to support any child or group of children we have identified as being disadvantaged.
We received £133,700 during the 2017/18 academic year.
