Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It was allocated to children from low-income families who were known to be eligible for free school meals, and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months. Eligibility for the Pupil Premium for 2012-13 was extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever6 Free School Meals measure). School also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and a smaller amount for the children of service personnel.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they are accountable for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups.
Our Pupil Premium Statements below detail how we have spent our Pupil Premium funding and the impact that it has had.
