- Pupil Premium -


The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to support pupils from low-income families. Although schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, schools will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupil’s attainment and progress.


The Department of Education Website states the following:


The purpose of the Pupil Premium

The government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.


It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.


At Priory Fields we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils.
