Pupil Premium is a sum of money allocated to schools for pupils that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years.
The purpose of Pupil Premium is to address inequalities by closing the gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.
The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium will support us in ensuring that teaching an d learning meet the needs of all pupils.
Pupil Premium will be allocated following needs analysis, which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources mean that not all pupils receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean that school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
Catch-up Premium Funding
In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19). This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.
