The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid by means of a specific grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces and children who are Looked After. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and is used by the school to address any underlying inequalities, by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.
