Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding - what is it?

The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that targets extra money at pupils who come from backgrounds that might be deemed to be disadvantaged.  The premium is provided in order to support these pupils so they may reach their potential.  Eligibility for the Pupil Premium from April 2012 is for any pupil who has been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) in the last six years.  In addition, pupils who are “looked after” by the authority (LAC) or whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces are also entitled to the premium.  From April 2014, schools in England can receive the Pupil Premium for children adopted from care, or who left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after 30 December 2005.  Schools can also claim the Pupil Premium for children who left care under a Residence Order on or after 14 October 1991.

regardless of their background.

-Ensure that pupils are supported to achieve their best and that we act early to

intervene at the point that need is identified.

-Support all pupils to interact positively with others and promote their self-belief and
