Pupil Premium 2013/2014

Pupil premium funding is additional funding, given to publicly funded schools so schools can extend their support to disadvantaged pupils in order to help close the attainment gap between these children and their peers.

Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non-deprived peers. The premium is provided to enable these pupils to be supported to reach their potential. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have been registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years.

Pupil Premium Plus was introduced in the financial year 2013/2014 to support children who:-
  • are currently under the care of the Local Authority;
  • have been looked after by the Local Authority, at any point, for 1 day or more;

  • left Local Authority care under a Special Guardianship on or after 30 December 2005;
