The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for this group of pupils. There are a variety of reasons why your child may be entitled to this funding which includes:
- If they are on Free School Meals or have been at any point in the last 6 years
- If they are a Looked After Child (in the care of the Local Authority)
- If they have previously been a Looked After Child and are now adopted from care or are under a Special Guardianship Order or a Child Arrangements Order or a Residence Order
- If they have a parent in the military or has been in the military over the past 5 years or are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence
