In 2011, the Government introduced Pupil Premium Funding to raise achievement among disadvantaged children. Pupil Premium Funding is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium Funding in 2012-13 was to be extended to pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last 6 years.
We allocate our Pupil Premium funding to various initiatives and provisions to ensure pupils reach their full academic and social potential.
The reports below show the barriers that the school has identified each year for our Pupil Premium children, the ways in which funding plans to be spent and reviews of how our Pupil Premium children are progressing and achieving.
