The school receives funding that is designated to support vulnerable children, children receiving Free School Meals (FSM) and those who have received Free School Meals in the past 6 years (Ever6 FSM) and children from Service Families.
In targeting the Pupil Premium we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium funding is to support any pupil, or groups of pupils, the school has legitimately identified as being vulnerable. FSM children, children of service families, and ‘looked after’ children are given priority for intervention if they are deemed to be in need of specific support.
