Pupil Premium & Catch up
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to increase the attainment and aspiration of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, including families who have been eligible for Free School Meals in the past six years and Looked After Children.
In 2011-2012 the Government launched its Pupil Premium Funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals. From 2012-2013, this funding was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. In addition children who are Looked After Children and children whose parents work in the forces also receive the grant. This money is allocated to schools to enable them to provide targeted support and initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
It will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
