What is Pupil Premium?
In 2011-2012 the Government launched Pupil Premium funding to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement. The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and diminish the gap between them and their peers. This funding is allocated to children who:
are currently or who have been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
have been in care for 6 months or longer
have been looked after for 1 day or more
were adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005 or left care after this date
are a member of an Armed Forces Family
We receive the equivalent of £1300 for every child who is currently in receipt of Free School Meals or has been eligible for Free School Meals within the past 6 years. (ever 6)
As a school, we have a responsibility to report on the progress of children receiving Pupil Premium; demonstrate how we are using the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) and the impact that it is having on children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The percentage of pupils in the school who are receiving free school meals; have received free school meals in one or more of the previous 6 years (Ever 6),; are a ‘looked after child, or a child of service personnel is 19%.
To diminish the gaps in progress made by children from disadvantaged backgrounds (FSM/LAC) compared with their peers.

Free School Meals and Pupil Premium
Parents can check eligibility for free school meals through Kent County Council’s ‘Education and Children’ service http://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children and, if eligible, gain welcome additional funding for their child’s school, known as ‘Pupil Premium’. If eligible, you are not obliged to accept the free school meals for your child if you wish to make other arrangements, but we do want to encourage applications as the additional funding would still benefit your child’s educational provision at the school.
Universal Free School Meals and the Pupil Premium
As the government has now introduced free school meals for all children in Key Stage 1, it is more important than ever for schools to know the number of pupils for whom they can claim Pupil Premium funding. Many children are missing out on this crucial funding. These funds enable schools to take on additional staff and invest in additional equipment, resources and activities to the benefit all children. (Please note: you are not obliged to take up the free school meals, however you can still claim the funding!)
