THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDES SCHOOLS WITH ADDITIONAL FUNDING BASED ON THE NUMBER OF THEIR PUPILS THAT ARE ELIGIBLE FOR FREE SCHOOL MEALS.
This Pupil Premium helps schools to tackle disadvantage and provide additional support for vulnerable learners.
During their learning journey many of our pupils benefit from additional support and intervention which target areas of difficulty. The nature of the support varies considerably as it is specifically designed to meet individual needs and consequently optimise progress.
The categories of pupils that are eligible for Pupil Premium funding are:
- Children who are either currently eligible for FSM or have been eligible for FSM in the past six years, even if it was for just one day;
- Children who have been looked after by a local authority (in care) continuously for more than six months;
- Children who have been adopted from care
- Children of Armed Forces Personnel
