Pupil premium is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years and it is designed to help the school to achieve better outcomes for its disadvantaged pupils. Pupil premium plus is allocated to the school based on the number of pupils adopted from care on or after December 30th 2005, or that left care under a Special Guardianship Order on or after the same date. It is allocated to ensure that these vulnerable pupils are supported appropriately in order to meet their emotional, social and educational needs ensuring the best possible outcomes.
Some children eligible for pupil premium, may also be entitled to free school meals. If you think you may qualify, you can check and register here
