Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?


Pupil premium grant is additional funding, from the government, provided to schools for supporting more pupils from low income families to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children.

There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium grant:
•Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)
•Looked after children
•Armed forces children

It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium grant is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils for whom they are responsible. Although these resources are targeted to PPG children, they are accessible to all pupils where necessary.

If you think your child is entitled to free school meals (whether you want them to eat them or not) then please let us know. Or follow this link to find out some more information and/or apply.
