Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding paid to schools in respect of their disadvantaged pupils. This includes children who have been registered for free schools meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years or are looked after continuously by the local authority for more than six months. Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and other pupils, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the children who need it most. Our school also receives funding for service children. 

You can check your eligibility for pupil premium via the link below. Please let school know if the check confirms you are eligible as we need to update our records accordingly.
