Pupil Premium and Sports Premium
Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are eligible for free school meals, children who have been looked continuously for more than six months and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Its purpose is to address inequality, ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage and support emotional and social well-being reaches the pupils who need it most. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium allocation as they see fit and are held accountable for how they have used the funds.
