Pupil Premium & Sports Grant
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after (LAC) continuously for more than six months.
A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils. For further details of our pupil premium please see below:
What is the Sports Grant?
This is funding that first became available in September 2013 which must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for primary aged pupils so they develop healthy lifestyles. For further details of our Sports Grant Funding please see below:
