What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is an initiative introduced by the Government allocated into the school budget to help children from lower income families to achieve their very best in school. The Pupil Premium comprises of 2 grants allocated for children in receipt of Free School Meals and children from Service families.
We use the Pupil Premium in various ways to support the learning and wellbeing of our pupils and to help support additional opportunities to children of low income families.
We monitor and measure the impact of all of our intervention programmes and adapt approaches where required in order to ensure that we deliver the very best support that we can. It is important to understand that all children that have been identified as having a need are also provided with appropriate support, however our statutory requirement is to report only on the Pupil Premium Grant.
Your child is eligible for free school meals if you receive income support, income related employment and support allowance, job seekers allowance (income based), child tax credit or pension credit with child tax credit and have an annual income of less than £16,190 (and not in receipt of working tax credit) or you are assisted by the national asylum service(NASS).
