What is Pupil Premium?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as “Ever 6 FSM”). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
Our pupil premium is targeted to meet the needs of our “Ever 6 FSM” children. Where it can be, it also meets the needs of non-FSM children. The table explains how and why needs have been identified, and how we are spending our pupil premium money to impact on ‘closing the gap’.
