The Pupil Premium 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 and children of armed service personnel. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.
The aim of this funding is to try to close the attainment gap between Pupil Premium children and their peers.
All schools are required to publish, on their websites, the funding they have received and how the money is being spent. Please see the attachments below for how we spend the Pupil Premium money.
