Pupil Premium Strategy
Pupil premium was first introduced in 2011 and is allocated to schools to allow them to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years. It is specific funding for children from low-income families who were or are eligible or received free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium…is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.”
