What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium is a government scheme that was introduced in 2011 to boost the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and close the gap between them and their peers.
This funding is aimed at addressing current underlying inequalities that exist between children from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.
It is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools also receive funding for children:
who have been ‘Looked After’ by the Local Authority continuously for more than six months
adopted from care under the Adoption and Children Act 2002
of service personnel who have left care under a Special Guardianship or residence order
At Springdale Primary School we work hard to ensure that we use the Pupil Premium funding to make the most impact for our children.
To learn how we spend this funding, please see the report below and visit the Department for Education's guide to Pupil Premium.
