The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding to help disadvantaged pupils perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers.
Research shows that pupils from a disadvantaged background underachieve compared to their peers, along with children of families who serve in the armed forces. The premium is provided in order to support these pupils in reaching their potential. Children eligible for Pupil Premium funding are:
Children eligible for income based free school meals,
Children who have been eligible for income based FSM anytime in the previous 6 years,
Children of families who serve in the armed forces,
Children of families who have served in the armed forces anytime in the previous 6 years,
Children recently adopted from care,
Looked after children.
If you require any further information about the Pupil Premium funding or think that you might be eligible, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Pupil Premium Impact Statement 2022-2023
The above Pupil Premium Strategy and Impact Statements include information about the Recovery Premium. The Recovery Premium is additional funding to provide further education recovery support. The Recovery Premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils, and schools do not have to spend recovery premium so that it solely benefits eligible pupils. Recovery premium can be used to support other pupils with identified needs, such as pupils who have or have had a social worker, or pupils who act as a carer. It can also be used for whole class interventions, for example high-quality teaching, which will also benefit non-disadvantaged pupils.
