Pupil Premium is an additional government grant which is added to the main funding that schools receive in their annual budgets. Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils who are currently registered for free school meals or who have received free school meals at any time in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6, FSM’).
The aim of the Pupil Premium funding is to support eligible children who may be vulnerable to under-achievement and address any attainment gaps. As well as focusing upon academic endeavours, it may also be appropriate to provide support to nurture their well-being and to provide these children with access to a variety of enriching experiences.
The school will evaluate the impact on each pupil at half-termly intervals. Evaluation will consider academic gains and how pupils’ self-confidence has developed as a consequence of the intervention and support. The strategy for the pupil premium will be reviewed in July.
