The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the school will receive from the Department for Education (DfE) for students:
- Accessing free school meals (FSM)
- Who are currently ‘looked after’ or have been previously ‘looked after’
- With parents serving in the Armed Forces.
The pupil premium is used to provide additional support and assist in raising achievement for those students that need it most, for example meeting all or part of the cost of educational trips or materials for children on FSMs. We have also provided targeted extra support to raise attainment in some subjects for students who qualify for pupil premium. Parents are encouraged to register their child as eligible for FSMs, if applicable, as this will mean that the school receives its maximum entitlement and also students can access additional support and resources.
