Pupil Premium

The Government believes that Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The information here gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


What is Pupil Premium?


The Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals(FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the ever 6 FSM).

Eligible pupils are:

  • pupils who qualify for income related free school meals
  • looked after children
  • pupils who have a parent in the armed forces

Schools are free to spend the pupil premium as they see fit. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support children from low income families in order to close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
