Parents and Carers
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 students aged 11 – 16 who fall into one or more of the categories listed below:
- Students who have been entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years (Ever 6 FSM)
- Students who have been looked after continuously for at least 6 months (CLA).
- Students 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.
- Students 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)
The Government provides £935 per child and this money is to be used in narrowing the gap between the progress of pupils who are “socially disadvantaged”.
