Each year the school receives funding in connection with the number of children who receive FSM (Free School Meals).
Please read the information contained in the Pupil Premium Strategy, which provides details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
In the 2020 to 2021 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:
- £1,320 for pupils in reception year to year 6
- £935 for pupils in year 7 to year 11
Schools will also receive £1,900 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order
- a residence order
If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.
Children who have been in local-authority care for 1 day or more also attract £1,900 of pupil premium funding. Funding for these pupils is managed by the virtual school head (VSH) in the local authority that looks after the child.
We review our use of pupil premium money each term to ensure that the spending is having an impact. If impact isn't being seen, then we change the spending plan spending accordingly.
