Pupil Premium Statement
September 2017 – July 2018
The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged/ vulnerable pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount allocated to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each pupil who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more.
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 within their responsibility. However, school are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, a statutory duty was place on school to published information on how the money has been spent to support disadvantaged pupils and the impact it has had 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 the plans for future spending.
