Pupil Premium 

Pupil Premium – A guide for parents/carers

The Department for Education (DFE) have provided schools with some money specifically aimed at maintaining or raising standards for those pupils who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any time in the past six years and for those pupils who are, or have been, in care. This money is called the Pupil Premium.

Financial help for Pupil Premium pupils is available in many areas of school life, some specific examples of which are:

  • Year 7 – ADT contribution
  • Years 7 to 11 – Day trips, residential trips and Music lessons (all subject to a limit)
  • Year 11 – Vocational courses, books and revision guides, transport home after revision classes (in exceptional circumstances only if lack of transport is preventing attendance)
  • Requests for Pupil Premium funding for school transport and/or uniform are not usually considered at this moment in time, but particular circumstances should be discussed with the Headteacher. 
  • Curriculum Support may be offered to Looked After Children, Post Looked After Children and Children Adopted from Care to help them to fulfil their potential across the curriculum.
  • Emotional and social support is also available if required.
  • The school may also be willing to contribute to certain out of school activities, including private tutors, Music lessons/clubs, Drama and sports activities.
  • We welcome the involvement of parents/carers in deciding how best to support their child. Parents/Carers should discuss any requests in confidence with the Headteacher.
