Pupil Premium Report to Parents 2019

Overview

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on the

school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in reception to Year 11. For looked

after children the Pupil premium was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns

(SSDA903). A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in

the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of

these pupils.

between children eligible for Pupils Premium and others.
