Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

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.


There are a variety of reasons why your child may be entitled to this funding, which include...

  • If they are on Free School Meals or have been at any point in the last 6 years.
  • If they are a Child Looked After (in the care of the Local Authority).
  • If they have previously been a Child Looked After and are now adopted from care or are under a Special Guardianship Order or a Child Arrangements Order or a Residence Order.
  • If they have a parent in the military or has been in the military over the past 5 years, or are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence .


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.
