Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low income families. It is intended to enable schools to provide targeted support to help children reach their full potential.
Funding is allocated for children who are Looked after by the Local Authority (CLA) and for every child who has been registered for Free School Meals in the last six years.
It is the responsibility of the governors to explain pupil premium expenditure to parents in the form of an annual statement.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils they are responsible for.
Reporting to Parents
Parents will be able to obtain information on the pupil premium via the school website. This is updated annually.
