Pupil Premium at Prior’s Mill CE Primary School
The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. Pupil premium funding makes a huge difference to schools.If you are eligible for Free School Meals, particularly in the Lower Phase where they are free this year, please still fill out the paperwork – it makes a huge difference to the school!
The basis on which pupil premium funding is calculated will not be affected by the introduction of UIFSM (Universal Infant Free School Meals).
The funding for the Pupil Premium Grant is informed by data collected in the School Census. Data on FSM-eligible pupils will continue to be collected by the department annually, through the School Census (for mainstream settings) and the Alternative Provision census (for non-mainstream settings).
If you receive any of the benefits below, please phone 01642 526606 and state that your child should be eligible for Pupil Premium. Even if you are not quite sure, it is worth checking.
