Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is allocated to all schools, both maintained and academies, to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not, in order to close the gap between them.
Entitlement and Use
Schools are currently given Pupil Premium funding of £1,345 per pupil for those whose families who have registered for FSM and £995 per pupil for each Ever 6 FSM. The children of members of the armed forces are also entitled to this funding and receive £310 service premium per pupil. In addition, schools receive £2,345 for each pupil who are looked after or have been adopted from care.
The key purpose of the Pupil Premium funding is to enable all pupils to reach their full potential. Each school may decide how best to use the funding to enable all its pupils to reach age related expectations and are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families.
We recognise that barriers to achievement take a variety of forms and will do whatever it takes to support a child, both in and out of the classroom. We use all our resources to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to reach their full potential. In order to achieve this we offer our children a wide range of opportunities, we always make sure these are accessible for everyone. We work with our families and colleagues to make certain that everyone has high aspirations for all pupils.
If you are unsure whether or not your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding, the process for applying is straightforward and confidential. You can speak to a member of the office staff, who will be able to assist you through this process.
Key Stage 1 and Free School Meals
Since September 2014 all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 have automatically been entitled to a free school lunch. However, registering for free meals could raise an extra £1,345 for the school equipment, resources and activities to the benefit all children. These funds enable our school to take on additional staff and invest in additional support.
