The Government defines the Pupil Premium as ‘additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.’
It is up to individual schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), is spent since they are most able to assess what additional provision should be made for their individual pupils.
For further information from the Government on Pupil Premium funding, please visit the Department for Education website.
At Carrington we recognise that each pupil is an individual and, as such, we allocate our Pupil Premium funding in a wide variety of ways to ensure maximum impact for those children who are eligible. A breakdown of spending and an impact summary can be found in the following document.
