Pupil Premium Funding 2016/17
The Pupil Premium Grant 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 in care or “looked after” continuously for more than six months. The Pupil Premium also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium Grant as they see fit. However, the school will be held accountable for how it uses the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. The school is required to publish online information about how it intends to use the Pupil Premium Grant. This ensures that parents/carers and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the plans in place to support the attainment of the pupils covered by the Pupil Premium Grant.
