Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding.
It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount allocated according 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. In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.
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.
Year 7 Catch-up Premium is provided to schools which is additional to main school funding.
The literacy and numeracy catch-up premium provides schools with funding for each year 7 pupil who did not achieve at the expected standard reading and/or maths at the end of Key Stage 2. Information on how the funding is allocated and the impact of this allocation can be found in the document below.
Our Pupil Premium reports will be reviewed annually, taking place next in July 2019.
