Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government to provide additional funding to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Disadvantaged pupils are defined as those eligible for free school meals (FSMs) at some point in the last 6 years and children who have been in care for more than 6 months (LAC) or children whose parents are currently employed by the armed services.

Pupil Premium funding is used depending on the need of the pupil. It can be used to provide specialist learning programmes, reading materials, additional lessons, educational visits or any other resource that would be of value to the pupil’s learning.
