What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is given to schools for children from low-income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals, and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Pupil Premium funding was introduced in September 2011. It comes from outside the school’s budget and is a separate specific grant.

Pupil Premium was extended for 2012–13 to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. Schools can choose how to spend the Pupil Premium. However, they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups. New measures have been included in the performance tables that show the achievement of pupils who attract the Pupil Premium.

The documents below show you how the school has allocated this funding.
