Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is a government grant allocated to children from low-income families who are known to have been eligible for Free School Meals within the past 6 years, or children who have been looked after for more than one day by the local authority. It is also granted for children who may come from a family in the armed forces. Each school is required to use this grant to support those children in bridging any gaps in attainment and offering the same opportunities as those who may be from families with more disposable income.
