The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to children from low-income families who have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children with parents serving in the forces.
The funding is to be used to address inequalities in educational results. The level of current pupil premium support funding is as follows:
|Disadvantaged Pupils||Pupil Premium per Pupil|
|Pupils in Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 FSM||£1,320|
|Looked After Children (LAC)||£1,900|
|Children adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002 and children who have left care under a special Guardianship or Residence Order||£1,900|
|Pupils in Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 4 Service Child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.||£300|
All matters regarding the use of Pupil Premium funds are treated with discretion and in confidence.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would still mean that the school could claim the Pupil Premium funding available to help your child.
