Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE) in 2011, as additional funding for pupils who receive Free School Meals (FSM), those who are Looked After Children (LAC) and those who are from service families. The Pupil Premium, using additional resources from outside the school’s budget, is intended to address the current inequalities by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. The DfE have agreed that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium Grant is spent. It is deemed that schools are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within a school.

About Pupil Premium

We use the Pupil Premium Grant to continue to improve learning outcomes for disadvantaged pupils and narrow the gap between pupil groups. In 2016-17, the Pupil Premium Grant for our school was £171,600. This money has been used to provide a range of additional support for our children.
