Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil premium is allocated to schools for children of eligible school age from low income families who are:-
Registered for free school meals (FSM), or have been at any time in the past 6 years. (Known as the Ever 6 FSM model).
Children who have been looked after (by the local authority) continuously for more than 6 months.
Parents who are currently serving in the armed forces.
Schools may use the Pupil Premium in whatever way they decide, however they will be held accountable for how it is used. From September 2012 we are required to publish online information on how the premium is used and what impact it has had. The premium is received on a financial year basis but, we have to report on an academic year basis.
Teaching and learning opportunities are planned to meet the needs of all children
Appropriate provision is made to meet the needs of children who belong to vulnerable groups, including socially disadvantaged pupils.
We recognise not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support children or groups of children we legitimately identify as being socially disadvantaged.
Pupil Premium funding will be directed towards priority classes, groups or individuals. Limited funding and resources may mean that not all children receiving free school meals will access pupil premium funded provision at one time.
Funding will be aimed at accelerating pupil progress to at least age related expectations, in English and Maths.
