Use of pupil premium funding
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. From 2012 this also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, we have been required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This is to ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the premium and the extra support that they receive.
