Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant: Report to Parents September 2016
The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools in addition to their main budgets to support schools across the country in reducing the attainment gap that currently exists between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The pupil premium grant is paid to each school by a specific grant based on the school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) in Reception to Year 11. Schools receive funding for pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been in care continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel (this service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of service personnel pupils).
