Pupil Premium Information for Parents

Pupil Premium 
Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional to funding to schools and academies to raise the attainment of children from low income and other disadvantaged families and to close the gap between them and their peers. Since 2011 the amount schools and academies receive has increased. Currently a Pupil Premium grant (PPG) of £1323 per pupil is allocated to schools for pupils on roll have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. £300 is allocated for children of service personnel and £1900 for any child that has been looked for one 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.

Schools have the freedom to decide how the Pupil Premium grant since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.

Schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support vulnerable pupils. From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website. Please read the documents below to find out how we spend our Pupil Premium and the impact of this funding.
