What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been 'looked after' continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.
How should schools spend the grant?
Schools must spend the grant for the educational benefit of their eligible pupils to boost progress as reflected in English and Maths results, but it is for the school to determine how it is spent. It is intended to be used to help narrow the achievement gap. Nationally, pupils eligible for pupil premium funding do not achieve as well as those pupils who are not eligible. At Nene and Ramnoth School, we strive to ensure all pupils achieve their potential.
We have identified how best to use this income to address inequalities, raise attainment and support these children. These are outlined in the pupil premium strategies below, under ‘Latest Reports’.
Who should parents contact for further information?
Contact the school office to find out if your child is eligible for free school meals and how to apply for them. This information will be held confidentially by the school and you may find the following leaflets helpful:
