The Use of Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently

known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream

settings, and children who have been looked after for at least one day. It also includes

pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM

measure). Funding is also allocated to children in Service families and children who are

looked after or adopted.

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 these children to fulfil

their potential. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the

Pupil Premium funding. This will 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.

Across our Federation we support ALL our pupils. We do this by providing high quality

teaching, supplemented by targeted interventions to support vulnerable learners as and

when required. The Head Teacher and the Governing Body monitors the impact of all

spending and interventions, including the Pupil Premium.

allocated and the impact it has had on the learning of the pupils who attract this additional
