Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools for children from low-income families. This is measured by identifying those children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years, looked after children (LAC) and children from service families. In the current academic year (2020/21), the allocation per child is £1084. This will total £75,940 of funding this year.

This funding is additional to main school funding and is considered to be the best way to address the gap between children from low-income families and their wealthier peers. The funding is used to narrow the gap between these two distinct groups. It is important to remember that this is a national, not a local initiative to raise the attainment of pupils.
