What is it?
The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Click here to see how we propose to use Pupil Premium at Peters Hill over the current academic year (2017-2018).
Why has it been introduced?
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, we are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. Click here to see how we have used Pupil Premium at Peters Hill over the last academic year (2016-2017).
