Pupil Premium Grant Spending

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools at the beginning of each financial year.

The allocation is a fixed amount per child (currently £1300), when the family is entitled to Free School meals at present or at any time during the previous 6 years, and £1900 if a child is a Looked After or Post Looked After Child within the previous 6 years. Schools must spend the funding to support the educational outcomes of such pupils.

The Head Teacher will consult with the senior leadership team, governing body, all staff and/or other interested parties, to assist in making a well informed decision of how best to use the funding to support the education of each pupil and to “diminish the difference” which may exist between the outcomes of such pupils compared to non-eligible pupils within the school, and nationally.
