What is Pupil Premium?
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. Introduced in April 2011, the pupil premium is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years (also known as Ever 6 FSM) and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. From April 2014 children who are looked after attract a higher rate of funding than children from low-income families – the ‘Pupil Premium Plus’.
Our allocation for the year 2017 – 2018 was £117,479. For information about how this was spent please see the 2017 – 2018 report for parents below.
