Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. From April 2012 this was extended to include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). Since 1st April 2023 the level of the premium has been £1,455 per eligible pupil. The Government has set the premium for service children at £335 per eligible pupil. Schools receive £2,530 for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to the school on an annual basis. It is important that if you think your child is eligible for pupil premium support, you contact the school office for more information. Individual requests for financial support for school-based activities are considered by the Headteacher. Requests can be made via the school office.
