Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on our school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to Year 2. For looked after children, the Pupil Premium is calculated using the Children Looked After data returns (SSDA903). The funding has been extended to fund children for 6 years after they have ceased being on Free School Meals. This is called Ever 6.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible and other children, by ensuring that funding reaches the children who need it most.
