Pupil Premium is an additional government grant, which is added to the main funding that schools receive in their annual budget. Pupil Premium is allocated to pupils who are currently registered for free school meals or who have received free school meals at any time in the last 6 years. The funding for these children is £1,320 per year. Children who have parents in the forces are allocated £300 a year. Any 'looked after children' are allocated £1,900.
The aim of Pupil Premium funding is to support eligible children who may be vulnerable to underachievement and address any attainment gaps. As well as focusing on academic endeavours. It may also be appropriate to provide support to nurture their well- being and provide these children with a variety of enriching experiences.
The Academy's Pupil Premium Statement explains the aims of the strategy, the evidence used to support the strategy, how it will be implemented and reviewed.
