Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools for pupils who have been registered as being entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. Schools receive this funding to support their eligible pupils and narrow the attainment gap between them and their peers. Further information about how the school spends these monies can be found on the school website here.  Other Pupil Premiums are available to the school if parents or guardians meet eligibility criteria 2 below. 

  • Is your child a looked-after child (LAC)? i.e. in the care of, or provided with accommodation by an English local authority?
