The Pupil Premium Strategy
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in all year groups from Reception to Year 11; for looked after children; and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
Subsequently it has been widened to include ‘Ever 6’ pupils. These are pupils that have been eligible under the above criteria in the previous 6 years.
The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between eligible children and others by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
