Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding aimed at students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.

The Government has used students entitled to Free School Meals and those who are looked after as an indicator for deprivation or social disadvantage. Schools will receive £1,345 for pupils in Reception to Year 6, based on the number of students registered for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years and who are looked after by the Local Authority. 

The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding supports our school in achieving its aim of helping every student to achieve to their full potential.
