Pupil Premium Statement

In this section...

Use of pupil premium 2016-17

The pupil premium is allocated to schools in respect of children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after by the local authority for more than six months. This applies to mainstream as well as special schools. The reason the Government gives school pupil premium money is because there is National evidence that pupils from low income families do less well at school than other pupils.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds in making good progress at school.
