Premium Allocations

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding provided by the Department of Education to individual schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. Funding is provide to “diminish the (attainment) difference” between children entitled to pupil premium and those classed as “other” (non-pupil premium).

Schools are free to make decisions on how to best spend their pupil premium funding but are accountable as spending must have a positive impact on overcoming educational barriers to learning.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
