WHAT IS PUPIL AND SERVICE PREMIUM?
Pupil Premium and Service Premium are government funds allocated to schools, mainly to support children from low income families and those who have a parent in the armed services. Their purpose is to address the resulting potentially negative effects that children from these backgrounds can experience that might put them at a disadvantage to other pupils, with the aim being to reduce the gaps in achievement or wellbeing that might exist between pupil premium children and other pupils. Pupil premium funding is also allocated to children who are in, or have been adopted from, Local Authority care.
Funding is allocated to schools for each pupil who has been eligible for FSM at some point over the previous six years or has at least one parent in the armed services. Schools decide how this funding is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.
HOW DOES POMPHLETT PRIMARY USE ITS PREMIUM FUNDING?
We use Pupil Premium and Service Premium funding to ensure all FSM children and Service Family children are supported so they make at least good academic progress. Service children are also supported so that any additional needs relating to their emotional and social well-being are also addressed. More details are available elsewhere in this section.
