Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium provides additional funding to support the educational achievement of a number of groups of children. These groups include:

  • Children from families in receipt of free school meals (FSM), or those who have been eligible for FSM in the previous 6 years (Ever 6).
  • Looked After Children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as a child ‘who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation’ by a local authority.
  • Post Looked After Children (Post LAC) for children who were looked after immediately before being adopted, or were placed on a Special Guardianship or Residence Order.
  • Children from Service Families and also from families whose parents have left the armed forces up to 6 years ago, (Ever 6 Service Children). Please inform the school if one or both parents are in the Services or have been in the past 6 years.

The school receives £1,320 for each FSM pupil and Ever 6 child, £1400 for each LAC, £1900 for a Post LAC child and £300 for a Service Family Child and Ever 6 Service Family Child.

The Pupil Premium is intended to address inequalities by ensuring that targeted support is provided for those children who need it most. Schools can decide how the pupil premium is allocated as they are seen as best placed to decide what additional support is necessary to meet the needs of individual pupils.
