Pupil Premium Allocation for the current year.
- The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to enhance the learning and achievement of pupils who have had free school meals in the last six years, potentially low income families, children who have been looked after by a local education authority, and children who were adopted on or after December 2005 or were placed on a Special Guardianship or Residence Order immediately after being looked after.
- The Government believe that the Pupil Premium, Which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the possible inequalities between children eligible for free school school meals (over the last six years) and their peers by ensuring that there is funding to support these pupils.
- There is also additional funding for students who have one or both parents in the armed forces or in receipt of an armed force pension. This is to ensure that they are provided with support at a potentially emotionally difficult time of their lives and to ensure that they make at least expected progress.
