Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low-income families who are known to be:
- eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been in the last 6 years
- looked after children and those previously looked after continuously for more than six months
- children with parents in the regular armed forces
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012 we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium and the extra support that they receive.
