The pupil premium is a government initiative designed to target resources for those pupils considered to be from a disadvantaged background. The Pupil Premium money is provided to schools and academies for pupils who fall into one or more of the categories listed below:
Pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM)
- Children who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).
- Children who have been looked after for 1 day or more; have been adopted from care or have left care under a special guardianship order, a residence order or a child arrangement order.
- Pupils who have a parent in the armed services or have had a parent/s in the armed services for the last four years. (Ever 4 Service Child)
If you feel that your own child may be eligible for Free School Meals or falls into one of the categories listed above and is not in receipt of the pupil premium fund, please contact the academy and we will support you with how to apply for this funding.
