What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently receiving or who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings. Also included are children from ‘Service’ families and those who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, including those who have been adopted. Students should have the opportunity to achieve well regardless of their economic or social situation. This money helps us to support these students to succeed.
