Disadvantaged funding (often known as Pupil Premium) is additional funding allocated to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for free school meals (FSM)and also for any children who are looked after (CLA) by the Local Authority. This includes any child who has been eligible for FSM within the last six years.
The school uses this money to make provision to support FSM and CLA children to make the best possible progress and to close the gap in their learning so that they do as well as children who are not eligible for FSM or CLA. This helps them to reach their full potential both academically and socially and to prepare them for the next stage of their education.
If your child does not have Free School Meals but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office, in confidence, for advice. Even if you do not wish your child to have the meals, the fact that you have registered would still mean that the school would be awarded the disadvantaged funding to help your child and others in school.
