What is Pupil Premium?
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 months, and children of service personnel. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit. However, we are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. We are required to publish information about how we have used the premium and the impact this has had. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the premium and the extra support they receive.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium grant and how we allocate the funding.
