The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding given to schools, in order to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.
The pupil premium provides funding for children:
· who have been in receipt of free school meals (FSM) at any point in the past 6 years (£1345 per child)
· who have been previously looked after, subject of a special guardianship order and/ or adopted from care (£2345 per child)
· pupil premium plus children currently being looked after or in care (£2345 per child per school year - held by the LA Virtual School Head accessed via PEP return )
· whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces (£310 per child)
At St Stephen's we spend our Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) on a number of research based initiatives, such as:
