The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 and is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to improve the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The funding is allocated to children who are, or have been in the previous six years, eligible for FSM (Free School Meals, now called Ever 6); children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of Service families. Schools can choose how to spend the Premium in the way they believe will best address the needs of this group of pupils.
At St Sebastian’s, we allocate the funding in a targeted way to help meet the needs of each pupil who receives Pupil Premium funding. This is done following a needs assessment to identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
