Pupil Premium/Free School Meals

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel.  The Pupil Premium is allocated on the current number of children on free school meals and ‘Ever 6’ (those children identified as being on FSM in the last 6 years).  The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.
