As you may be aware, the government provides a ‘Pupil Premium’ to schools which means that the school receives an extra amount per pupil based on the number of pupils eligible for free school meals.
The Government requires the school to publish information about how we use Pupil Premium Funding:
‘In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or Looked After Children. From 2012-13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years and children of service personnel.’
Pupil Premium Information
The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving our vision.
- We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately addressed
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals
- Pupil premium will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources means that not all pupils receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at one time.
