In 2011-2012 the Government launched its pupil premium funding. The pupil premium (PP) is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Pupil Premium funding is awarded to any child who:
- Is eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) (different from the current hot lunches offered without charge to KS1 pupils) or has qualified for free school meals at any point in the past six years.
- Has been looked after under local authority care for more than one day or is adopted.
- Has a parent in the armed forces.
These pupils will receive additional support if the above conditions are registered with the school. If you think your child is eligible to receive Pupil Premium Funding, then please contact the school office and you can arrange to speak to a member of staff in confidence about this.
