Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. This money is allocated to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals or who have been eligible in the last six years (Ever6). Additional funding is also provided for pupils who have been; ‘looked after’ for one day of more; adopted from care or who have left care but subject to a residency order, a child arrangement order or guardianship order. The money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. The school recognises that there may be some socially disadvantaged children who do not qualify, or are not registered for free school meals. Pupil Premium funding is also used to support these children.
To narrow the gap for disadvantaged pupils by addressing inequalities and raising the attainment of pupils in low income families or those who are ‘looked after’.
