Pupil Premium Funding
‘The Government believes that the Pupil Premium which is additional to main school funding is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most’.
School can determine how the Pupil Premium is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision is needed for individual pupils with their responsibility. School must publish how they spend this money.
Schools receive £1,320 for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals, or who has been entitled in the last 6 years. Looked After Children and children adopted from care are given £1,900.
Please see files below to see how we have allocated this money and the impact of the spending last year. This document shows the outcomes for the disadvantaged children supported by pupil premium funding.
Any child who was adopted from care now qualifies for additional funding. We appreciate that this can be a sensitive subject but all information would be in the strictest confidence and would allow school access to provide additional support to such children. The Headteacher would need to see a copy of any court order issued in connection with the child's adoption or care. If you need any other information then please do not hesitate to contact school.
