The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low income families. It is intended to enable schools to provide targeted support to help children reach their full potential.
Pupil Premium is allocated to schools with pupils on roll who are known to be or have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years; looked after children; or children of service personnel.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will support raising the achievement of disadvantaged pupils. However, schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
Schools are obliged to publish their PPG spending on their websites. Below is a summary of our spending, including how the funding has been used and the impact on children's achievement.
