Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium (also known as the Disadvantaged Premium) was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with students who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).  Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel. 

Pupil Premium, which is supplementary to main school funding, is designed to address the underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most. Alongside this, the Academy recognises that not all students who are socially disadvantaged are registered, or qualify for free school meals. Therefore the Academy reserves the right to allocate Pupil Premium to help support any student or groups of students, legitimately identified by the Academy, as needing additional provision to achieve improved outcomes in learning and/or wellbeing.
