The Pupil Premium Grant is funding which comes direct from the Government and is designed to
help ‘disadvantaged’ children to do well at school.
The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for Free School Meals (FSM) in the past six years, or are in care (LAC), adopted or have had parents in the armed forces within the past 5 years.
“Schools will have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying
schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most
vulnerable pupils.” DFE Website.
Below you will find a breakdown of how we have allocated this spending, including the impact it has had on progress and attainment. This will be reviewed termly to ensure that we maximise the grant to have greatest impact on progress. The next review will take place in December 2019.
