Pupil Premium

In 2011/12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).

Since 2012/13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last six years.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we are accountable as to how the additional funding has been used to support pupils from low-income families.
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. Even if you do not wish your child to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
