Pupil Premium

Grant Overview

The pupil premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals, those Looked After by the local authority (children in care) or who have parents in the Armed Forces. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and, once available, the impact the funding has had.

The national trend is that pupils who are eligible for free school meals have lower achievement than those who are not eligible. The pupil premium grant is used to help narrow this gap.
