In 2011 the Government launched Pupil Premium funding to support schools in raising the aspirations of vulnerable children to ensure they meet their potential both academically and socially.
The funding is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or those who have been in the last six years, children in care (CIC) and the children of members of the armed forces. We receive the equivalent of £1320 for every child who meets the criteria.
As a school, we have a responsibility to report on the progress of children receiving pupil premium. This includes demonstrating how we are using the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) and the impact that it is having on children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
To ensure that children from disadvantaged backgrounds (FSM/CIC) are able to make the same progress as, or better progress, than their peers.
