Pupil premium is received in our school budget for students falling into three categories: those students eligible for free school meals (FSM), those students who have previously claimed Free School Meals in the last six years (E6) and those students registered as belonging to a forces family.
In both cases we have encouraged families to a) claim FSM and b) register if they are a forces family.
The additional money received per student is to be used to support them in their education and to ensure that they are not disadvantaged in any way.
- To maximise the level of targeted support available for all students so that any barriers to learning are reduced.
- To narrow and eradicate any gaps in the outcomes of Pupil premium and non-Pupil Premium students.
- To support and improve the well-being of all students.
