Pupil Premium is an additional government grant which is added to the main funding that schools receive in their annual budgets. Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils who are currently registered for free school meals or who have received free school meals at any time in the last six years (known as 'Ever 6, FSM').
The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to support eligible children who may be vulnerable to under-achievement and address any attainment gaps. As well as focusing upon academic endeavours, it may also be appropriate to provide support to nurture their well-being and to provide these children with access to a variety of enriching experiences.
Each year we are required to develop a plan which shows how we will use the Pupil Premium Grant to ensure all children achieve and thrive in their Primary Years. At the end of the academic year the plan will be evaluated. Have a look at the document below for further information on how the Pupil Premium Grant was spent last year and the reviewed impact it had on Pupil Premium children as well as the plan for this year.
