Pupil Premium

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011, as a way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are either currently eligible for FSM or have been eligible for FSM in the past six years. It is also allocated to children who have been looked after by a local authority (in care) at any point in their lives.

In September 2014, the Government introduced 'Universal Free School Meals' for all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. However, it is important that parents/carers of children in these year groups still apply (through completing a very short form!) for free school meals if they think that they may be eligible, so that the school receives pupil premium for them.

The Government decided that it is up to schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

At Holy Cross, we have looked closely at the needs of the pupils who receive Pupil Premium, in an effort to provide the right kind of support. We aim to make the best use of the Pupil Premium by tailoring it to the needs of our pupils. 

If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, please contact Miss Sims in the school office.
