Pupil & Sports Premium
Pupil Premium is additional funding that is paid directly to the school by the Government. It is used to improve your child’s outcomes and to enhance their educational experience as well as funding items such as school uniform and school trips. It is additional to main school funding and is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM).
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
It is for schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent, since they are best placed to access what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, this information must be published on the school website. Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium was spent in the last financial year, the impact of this funding, and plans for future spending.
