The Pupil Premium is grant funding and is in addition to the School’s Delegated Budget. It was established by the government to address the inequalities between pupils. It is allocated according to the number of children on roll who are eligible for free school meals at any time in the last six years, who have been Looked After for more than six months, who are adopted or who have a parent in one of the armed forces. It is up to the school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent. Pupil Premium funding is used to raise attainment as well as promoting social skills, independent learning and positive behaviour.
At Friars Primary School we believe that every child should be supported to succeed no matter what their background and we use the Pupil Premium funding to achieve this.
Please see the strategy report below for 2020-21 to see how this money will be spent. The impact report for 2019-20 shows the effect of the Pupil Premium Grant last academic year.
