The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. Schools receive a payment, or Pupil Premium, for each child who registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years; those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.
In 2016/17 this income was £1320 per pupil. In 2016/2017 we received £25,080.
Schools, Headteachers and teachers decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for these pupils within their responsibility. They must also report on-line how they have used the Pupil Premium and the impact it has had on pupil achievement.
