Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children that qualify for pupil premium:

  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM).
  • Looked after children.

The school has a very small proportion of children who are eligible for pupil premium (6%).
