PUPIL PREMIUM FUNDING

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 (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Below you will find information about how we have spent our Pupil Premium funding and the impact it has had on our pupils:
