The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Read more about our Pupil Premium allocation, and what the impact of the spending has been, in the report below:
Pupil Premium Statement Schools are currently given a Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) of £1,455 per pupil for those whose families who have registered for FSM. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years (Ever 6). The children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to this funding. Schools also receive £2,530 for each pupil who has been looked after for 1 day or more; has been adopted from care or has left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.
The money is given to schools to support them in enabling all pupils to reach or exceed the nationally expected level for their age. Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families.
The key purpose of our Pupil Premium funding is to enable all the pupils to reach their full potential. We work with our families and colleagues to make sure everyone involved with the child has high aspirations.
We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and will do whatever it takes to support a child, both in and out of the classroom. We use all our resources to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to become an empowered learner. In order to achieve this, we offer our children a wide range of opportunities, we always make sure these are accessible for everyone. Our pupil premium strategy is reviewed annually.
