Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantaged reaches those pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Yr 11 who are currently entitled to free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible at any point in the last six years. The funding allocated for 2015/16 was £1320 per eligible pupil. Further funding is available for Looked After Children or those that have parents in the Armed Forces.
