Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a government funded resource paid to schools to meet the needs of disadvantaged pupils. Any pupil who is eligible for free school meals now, or has been eligible in the previous 6 years, will receive funding. The funding is also provided to meet the needs of children in care to the Local Authority, children who have recently been adopted from care and children of Service families. The funding paid for each of these groups is different and varies year-on-year.

 

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support the pupils mentioned above. We carefully plan our spending and evaluate the impact of it and you can find the most recent plan and evaluation here:
