Pupil Premium is additional government funding and is allocated to schools according to the number of pupils on roll who are:
- Eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
- Eligible for Free School Meals within the last six years
- Looked After Children (LAC), including adopted children and those on Residence or Special Guardianship Orders
- Pupils from Armed Service families
Nationally, the statistics show that pupils who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers. The aim of this money is to try and close that attainment gap.

Pupil Premium Funding
In the document below, we detail how we propose to spend our allocated funding in 2021-2022 to support children to accelerate progress and narrow gaps in achievement.
As part of the government's support for schools in addressing the impact of coronavirus, we have received additional funding for the 2021-2022 academic year. To support schools to make the best use of this funding, the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has published a coronavirus (COVID-19) support guide for schools with evidence-based approaches to support catch up for all pupils.
