The school is allocated Pupil Premium money for all children who are currently eligible for free school meals, have been eligible at some point during the past six years, are children of service personnel or are looked after children.
The school is required to show the amount of pupils eligible for funding and the amount we receive as a consequence of this. We also have to show how we intend to spend the money and the impact of the actions upon receipt of funding. In addition, from September 2016, schools are required to publish a Pupil Premium Strategy report.
At around £1,000 per eligible pupil, this money is for schools to decide how to use in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds. The pupil premium has the potential to have a great impact on the attainment, and future life chances of pupils.
Schools can choose to allocate this funding as they wish, which could impact upon a greater quantity of pupils than the Pupil Premium currently funds.
