The Pupil Premium and Service Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding allocation. It is allocated according to the number of children on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), a smaller amount allocated according to the number of children of service families, and an allocation for each child who has been ‘Looked After’ (in care) for 6 months or more. .
We focus our Pupil Premium expenditure on the attainment and progress of disadvantaged children. We plan and review a range of interventions and strategies that enable us to diminish the difference between disadvantaged pupils and non-disadvantaged pupils. The vast majority of the funding enables us to teach children in smaller groups, improve the quality of emotional support we can offer the children and to fund curricular and extra curricular activities to ensure every disadvantaged child has full access to a broad and varied provision throughout their time at Kingswood Primacy School.
