The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at improving the outcomes of pupils who are or have been entitled to Free School Meals in the last six years.
Free School Meal entitlement is different and separate from the Universal Free Infant School Meal Scheme. Free School Meal entitlement is linked to the current benefit system. These pupils are not just those who are considered to be doing less well than their peers, they are also children who are considered to be doing as well or better than their peers.
For the academic year 2017-2018 funding has been calculated on the basis of £1320 for each pupil who is eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years. There is also a related Service premium for children from families in the armed services and for children who are in Looked After Care.
All of the activities that we use are monitored, reviewed and adjusted on a regular basis.
