Pupil Premium funding comes directly into the Academy. It is based on the number of children registered as eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) now and that have been eligible in the last six years. It is also allocated to Looked After Children (CLA) and children who has a parent/s in the Armed Forces.
It should be made clear that not all children eligible for Pupil Premium are low attaining or making poor progress. We have considered how to support the learning and outcomes of all children eligible, including those with disabilities or those higher attaining pupils in addition to those who had barriers to learning.
