Pupil Premium Information
The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off. Funding is calculated on the basis of £1,320 for each pupil who has been eligible for free school meals in the past six years, and £1900 for looked after children in care for more than six months. There is a related Service premium of £300 for children of families in the armed services. The funding is provided to schools, which decide how best to spend this according to local needs.
