Pupil Premium is a government grant which is additional to main school funding and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who are disadvantaged to help close the gap between those pupils and their peers.
'Disadvantaged' pupils include those who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, pupils who are 'Looked After' and those who have been adopted, as well as children who have a parent in the Armed Forces.
As a group, research shows, disadvantaged children have consistently lower educational attainment than other pupils.
Schools have to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, they are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support disadvantaged pupils.
Find out more about whether your child might be eligible. Please remember that even if your child does not have a school dinner, he/she could still be eligible for Pupil Premium and that this funding directly benefits your child and the school. If you wish to discuss this further please do not hesitate to contact us.
