Pupil Premium funding is an additional funding stream that aims to narrow the gap in achievement and attainment between children entitled to free school meals (FSM) and their non-FSM peers.
The government has extended its reach to cover any child that has been registered for FSM or a Looked After Child (LAC) within the past six years.
According to the DfE, schools have the freedom to spend the funding as they see fit based upon their knowledge of pupil need; ‘It is for the schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what educational provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility’ (DfE website)

If you are in receipt of certain benefits, you may be eligible for Pupil Premium and you could save hundreds of pounds a year on school meal costs. The school also benefits as we could receive up to £1,345 per year from the government for each child registered which can be used for books, equipment, additional staff and to subsidise educational visits or after school clubs for the named child.
Please speak to the School Office if you have any questions
