Pupil Premium is additional government funding designed to support schools in raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the gap with their peers. The funding is based on the number of pupils:
who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years
who have been continuously looked after by the Local authority for the past 6 months
have ceased to be Looked After by the Local Authority due to adoption or other special circumstance
whose parents are in the armed forces
who are 3 or 4 years old in receipt of free Early Years education.
Key Principles relating to the Pupil Premium Grant
All pupils are equally valued and the teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils whatever their social disadvantage.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive FSM will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all students who are socially disadvantaged qualify for FSM.
