Pupil Premium

Pupil premium – What is it?

National Statistics indicate a gap in educational standards between those children who are entitled to free school meals and those who are not. The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government and is allocated to children from lower income families who have been eligible to free school meals at any point in the last six years.
