Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium


By law, we are required to publish details of the way in which the Pupil Premium Grant, an additional source of school funding allocated by the government, is spent within the school.


The government believes that the Pupil Premium Grant, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.


The Pupil Premium Grant was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6 FSM').


Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.
