The Pupil Premium (PP) is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority for at least six months and the children of armed service personnel.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their peers. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit and our school has agreed a Pupil Premium policy which details our intentions.
We are committed to targeting PP funding to support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable children in our school. Schools are required to report on the amount of funding received; how this is being used and the difference it is making.
The link below outlines how Pupil Premium Funding has been targeted at our school and the impact it has had on standards for those children.
