The pupil premium is a grant given to schools for each child who claims free school meals (FSM) currently or who has done so at some point in the past six years. It is extremely important that all parents/carers of children eligible for FSM do register (even if you then choose to not have the meals) as this grant enables us to provide extra resources for children. To register for Free School Meals please collect an application form from reception.
The pupil premium grant is provided because national research has shown that in some cases, pupils who are eligible for FSM may need additional support and resources to achieve the very highest grades. The government provides us with Pupil Premium Funding so that we can commission and allocate additional support to ensure all pupils achieve their potential.
The support can be in a short burst of a few weeks or run for a longer period of time. This may take the form of one-to-one or small group teaching. It can be additional resources, enrichment or access to opportunities that may accelerate learning or develop greater ambition.
We are delighted to be able to offer reviews of the provision your school makes for its disadvantaged pupils using pupil premium funding. For more information please click here.
