The pupil premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years.
Our school has the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the main school budget, in a way we think will best address inequalities, tackle disadvantages and support the raising of attainment for our pupils.
