Pupil Premium and PE & Sports Premium
Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil Premium is a grant paid to schools by the government, in order to help disadvantaged children achieve more in their education. It is provided for children from low-income families, who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years, or who have been in care for more than six months.
The purpose of the grant is to enable schools to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their wealthier peers. Schools are required to spend the money on areas that will directly impact these children's attainment. As this money enables the school to make significant improvements in our educational offer, we urge all eligible families to apply. The only way the government knows who is eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant is through the number of pupils registered with the Local Authority for free school meals.
Did you know that the Local Authority also offers clothing grants to help families purchase school uniform for children aged 4-7 years? Find out more here. You can contact the Local Authority on 020 8753 6681, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.
