Pupil Premium Funding


What is Pupil Premium?


The Pupil Premium Grant is provided to schools by the Government. The purpose of this additional funding is to raise attainment and improve outcomes for disadvantaged and vulnerable pupils in line with that of others.

The school receives additional Pupil Premium funding which is based on the number of children who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), and from 2012-13 this also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Children who have been in care for one day or more (CiC) are entitled to additional funding (up to £1900) as are children of service personnel. Children who have been in care and are subsequently adopted are also eligible for additional funding.


Currently the level of the pupil premium for primary aged pupils (Reception to Year 6) is £1320 per pupil per year.
