Pupil Premium & Catch-up premium

All schools receive additional income called the Pupil Premium.

This money is allocated by the Government to help schools support children from low income families and children in care. The amount of additional funding schools receive is based on the number of children who are entitled to receive free school meals (FSM)* or are looked after children (CLA). (* since September 2012 this includes children who have received free school meals any time over the past six years).  Nationally, FSM pupils and looked after children achieve less compared to other students.  Pupil Premium money has been given to help schools narrow the gap.
