Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. In our school, the pupil premium money is aimed at children from EYFS to Year 6 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been registered for FSM in the past 6 years. The fund also covers children in care (CLA) who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. There is also a smaller amount of funding for children whose parents are serving in the armed forces.

What is Recovery Premium?

In February 2021, the government announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery. The recovery premium provides additional funding for schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils.

The three key principles of our strategy plan are;

  • High-quality teaching
  • Targeted academic support
  • Wider strategies
