Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy

What is it?

The Pupil Premium, introduced in April 2011, is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between these children and their peers.

Who is eligible for it?

Schools receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:

  • £1,320 pounds for pupils in Reception Year to Year 6
  • £935 pounds for pupils in Year 7 to Year 11

Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil who has left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:

  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order

If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract 1,900 pounds.

What do I do if I think my child may be eligible for it?

If you think your child is eligible please speak to Mrs Rothon, our School Business Manager

How is it spent?

Schools are able to decide how to best invest this money to support disadvantaged pupils within their school, however schools must report how the money is spent to stakeholders, including Governors and parents.

How are we spending our money
