The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals in both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, as well as those children who have been in Looked After care continuously for more than six months, and children of Forces personnel. 
With the introduction and roll-out of Universal Credit the government has taken the decision to leave all current and new claims (known as 'legacy protection') on free school meals until 31 March 2023 regardless of changes in financial or employment circumstances.

Government FSM guidance can be found here:

Pupil Premium children benefit from a remission of school based fees which is detailed in our local policy approved by the Governing Board. The Policy is currently under review following changes to the eligibility criteria of Service children from January 2021 and will be published here once ratified.

Our link Governor for monitoring the Pupil Premium strategies/spending from September 2018 is Mr B. Young (see Governance arrangements).

LINKED FINANCIAL INFORMATION:

It is a requirement of the DfE's Financial Value Standard that schools publish on their website a link to the schools financial benchmarking website where Consistent Financial Reporting (CFR) statement of income, expenditure and balances is published. The link below takes you to the DfE website where comparisons can be made to other schools of a similar benchmark set.

Other Funds:

Across the school year, we try and raise voluntary funds to support additional activities and experiences for our children. This can involve fetes, sponsored events, donations from outside organisations not linked to the designated school grant funding etc. This income constitutes the School Voluntary Fund, a non-statutory fund that falls outside the remit of our designated school budget. This fund is still robustly audited by the Together for Chidlren Finance Team and reported to Govenrors annually. Further information on the fund is available on writtent request to the school.
