Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

'Pupil premium funding is used well. The school carefully diagnoses the individual needs of each disadvantaged pupil and provides a wide range of support for them.' OFSTED 2017

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM).

 

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

 

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

We are holding an open morning for prospective parents on Tuesday 28th November from 9am - 12noon. Further details can be found on the letter (see the 'Newsletters and Letters' drop down in the 'News and Events' section) or please telephone school if you require any further information.
