Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is money paid in addition to the school’s budget. This is awarded on various factors according to the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals, those pupils who qualify through Ever 6 (pupils who, in the past 6 years, have been in receipt of Free School Meals) , those whose parents have served in the Armed Forces and the numbers of Looked After/previously Looked After Children. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for these most vulnerable pupils.
