What is Pupil Premium?

What is it?

Pupil Premium is an amount given by the government to schools to support children who have, or have had in the last 6 years, free school meals.

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.

Pupil Premium 2015-2016

In 2015-2016 there were 42 Pupil Premium on role and we received a total grant of £49,900.
