Providing Positive Experiences for Children


Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is additional money provided by The Government to “Raise achievement and diminish the difference between children of low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.” Exactly who these pupils are is determined by the following criteria – all pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM); any pupil who has been eligible for free school meals in the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM); any children in Local Authority Care (LAC) who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months; or children whose parents are serving in the armed forces. The funding is paid to school in 3 instalments over the school year and is based on data provided in the January Census with ‘Ever 6 FSM’ figures being provided to school by the DFE in February. It is for schools to decide how this Pupil Premium money is spent as they are best placed to assess what additional provision will bring the most benefit for their disadvantaged pupils.
