Pupil Premium Funding
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used. Where there are 10 or more children eligible for pupil premium on roll the school is required to publicise the impact on the School Website. We refer to the following document: "Supporting the attainment of disadvantaged pupils: articulating success and good practice" which was published in November 2015 to support our decisions on the use of Pupil Premium funding.
The DfE has given us the freedom to use the Pupil Premium as we see fit, based on our knowledge of our pupils' needs. "It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium allocated to school is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility." - Source: DfE website
