The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding they receive and how this is being used.
The governors monitor the impact of this provision using a number of different measures including pupil progress and attainment data, lesson observations and consultation with pupils and parents.
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding given to schools and academies to:
raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.
