The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to raise the achievement of pupils who may be disadvantaged through personal circumstances.
It was introduced in April 2011 and allocated to schools for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit but are obliged to publish the amount of funding they have received and how it has been used. Our
Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed each October.
Common uses of the Pupil Premium include paying for staff, enhancing the curriculum, subsidising educational visits and paying for uniform and equipment.
