What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services.
If you believe that you may be entitled to free school meals then please complete the online form. It can be found by clicking this link. Alternatively you can visit a Liverpool City Council One Stop Shop. Applying for this funding is beneficial to the school so we encourage all parents to complete the form even though your children are automatically entitled to free school meals in KS1. If you have any questions or require assistance completing or accessing the form online please ask staff in the school office for some help.
We use the funding provided in a variety of different ways, you can view how we have used the money in the statements below.
