Why do schools get this extra funding?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is in addition to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.
The school receives money for students whose parents work in the services. This money is intended to ensure that the school has the capacity to support children from service families as required. This money helps to fund our Student Support Workers who provide essential pastoral support to students.
