& Sport Premium Grants
Pupil Premium Funding
The Government provides additional funding for schools to help address underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their peers. Criteria for this funding include children who are eligible for free school meals due to their parents receiving particular benefits; children who have been 'looked after' continuously for more than six months (ie children in public care, who are placed with foster carers, in residential homes or with parents or other relatives); and children of service personnel.
School Leaders are responsible for deciding how to best allocate the funds. The progress of children linked to the Pupil Premium Funding allocation is tracked closely to ensure we are narrowing the gap between them and their non-Pupil Premium peers.
