Pupil Premium


 

Pupil Premium Grant 2016 -17

Overview

Pupil Premium is additional government funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Funding is received for each pupil who has been in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) during the last six years, or is, or has been, a Looked-After Child (LAC) or a child from a service family.

For the current academic year, the Pupil Premium Grant is broken down as follows:

FSM                         £1320

LAC                          £1900

Service Children   £300

In 2016/17 our pupil premium grant totals £17,580 to support 12 children, representing 8% of pupils.

· Emotional and social difficulties, including attachment difficulties
