Pupil premium was first introduced in April 2011. It is an allocation of additional funding given to the school to support pupils who are entitled to free school meals, looked after by the local authority or children of armed service personnel. The government believes that the pupil premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for FSM and their peers.
The intended impact of this funding is to raise attainment and improve progress of these pupils.
There is a document on the parnets page of the portal that gives a more detailed break down of the expenditure and this document will be added to the new website as soon as it is up and running.
