The Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011. Since that date, schools have been allocated funding for children from families who are eligible for free school meals, ‘looked-after’ children and children from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The Pupil Premium is also paid on the basis of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years. The aim of the funding is to help raise standards for children in these groups.
The Pupil Premium funding makes a major contribution towards the provision we are able to make for our target children.
