Pupil Premium Funding
Pupil Premium Funding Information for Parents and Carers
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received depends on the number of children who are known to be eligible for free school meals. Schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.
- We organise teaching and learning in order to meet the needs of all children in the best way.
- We ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups and that socially disadvantaged children have their needs adequately assessed and met.
- We recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and that not all children that are disadvantaged have free school meals.
- We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any child the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged.
- We allocate Pupil Premium funding based on an analysis of need, identifying priority groups and individuals. This means that not all children receiving free school meals will receive provision funded from the Pupil Premium throughout the year.
- We use a range of strategies in school to raise the attainment and progress of children receiving free school meals, as well as for all of our children. Some of these strategies have no cost, but are included here for your information. Some of the strategies which use the Pupil Premium funding will also benefit all children, not only those who receive free school meals.
