Pupil Premium and Covid Catch up
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium Background
What is the Pupil Premium? Pupil Premium is additional funding that is made available by the government. Its purpose is to assist with raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and closing the academic gap between them and their peers. Nationally, there is a significant gap between the attainment of those pupils from deprived backgrounds and other groups. In order to close this gap, the government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011.
Which children are eligible for the Pupil Premium? Those pupils eligible for this funding have to meet at least one of the following criteria:
Pupils who are currently in receipt of Free School Meals
Pupils who have been in receipt of Free School Meals at any point during the last six years
Pupils who have at least one parent currently serving in the British Armed Forces
Pupils who have been in receipt of care from a Local Authority for a period of at least six months
