Pupil Premium/Covid Catch up funding

Purpose of Pupil Premium 

  • The Government believes that the use of Pupil Premium funding, additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those who are not.


  • Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit and are  held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.


  • Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement states how we propose to use the funding to support pupils this year.
