The pupil premium grant gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to Year 11. The additional money is available from Central Government and is allocated to schools based upon the number of pupils who:
- are currently eligible and registered for Free School Meals (FSM);
- have been registered for FSM in the last six years (referred to as 'Ever 6');
- are children whose parents are serving in HM Forces (Service Children); or
- have been in local authority care for six months or more (now one day or more).
It is therefore important to sign up for FSM, even if your child is in Reception, Year 1 or Year 2, as registering could raise an extra £1,300 per pupil for the school. If you think you may be eligible, please complete the form below and return it to the school office.
