Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for identified pupils. The money is used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
The amount of money allocated is dependent on the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years. ‘Pupil Premium Plus’ is granted for pupils who are ‘Looked After’ (in care) or adopted. Pupil Premium payments are also received for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces or have previously served in the last 5 years.
All members of staff and governors accept responsibility for these pupils and are committed to meeting their pastoral, social and academic needs within the school environment. Banks Methodist Primary School is committed to ‘diminishing the difference’ between vulnerable pupils and the Pupil Premium funding forms a vital part of that process.
