The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Pupil Premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.

If you think your child may eligible to receive this additional funding and support but are not sure whether the school are aware of this, please speak in confidence to a member of staff in the Admin Office. Alternatively, please complete the appropriate form below and return to the school office - we will then check eligibility and ensure that the school receives all funding due to support your child.
The pupil premium strategy is monitored throughout the year by:
Senior Leadership Team monitoring programme
The Inclusion Manager's Termly Report to Governors
Discussion at Curriculum and Standards Committee
Discussion at Parents, Pupils and Community Committee
The next annual review of the Pupil Premium Strategy Review will take place in September 2018.
