Pupil Premium Strategy

What is Pupil Premium?

 

Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

 

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
  • often do not perform as well as their peers

The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

 

Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals or have been within the last six years; children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of armed service personnel.

 

These groups of children have been identified nationally as achieving at a lower level than children from less disadvantaged backgrounds.
