The Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. The Pupil Premium is allocated to: children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings; children who have been looked after continuously for more than six month; from families with parents in the Armed Forces.

It is to be used by schools to raise achievement for disadvantaged pupils. In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Please see below for links to how we spent our pupil premium funding in 2015/2016 and plans for the funding in 2016/2017.
