The Pupil Premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims for free school meals or who has done so in the past. It is vital that all parents/carers of children eligible to do so register for free school meals (even if you don’t choose to have them) as the grant enables us to provide extra resources for your children.
Research has shown that children who are disadvantaged through a lack of socio-economic opportunity do not attain as highly as other children in school. If your child has been on or is currently on Free School Meals (FSM), the Government provides this grant so that we can allocate additional support. It may take the form of one-to-one support or small group teaching and may be an evidence-based intervention. It can be additional resources, enrichment or access to opportunities that enhance learning and or aspiration.
