The Pupil Premium is allocated by local authorities, or the DfE, to schools and academies with pupils between reception and Year 11. The grant per eligible pupil for the current financial year is £1320 in Primary Schools, with £1900 for looked-after and adopted children (Pupil Premium Plus). Schools and academies have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to their underlying budget, in any way they think will best support raising the achievement of disadvantaged pupils in comparison with non-disadvantaged peers within the school and nationally, whatever their academic starting point and potential. As well as receiving extra funding for Pupil Premium, these children also receive free school meals (FSM).
We will use the Pupil Premium funding received by our academy to deliver our overall vision to those pupils who receive it and the wider academy community wherever possible.
