The Community Education Partnership

The Pupil Premium is described by the Department for Education (DfE) as ‘additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.’

The DfE allocates this money according to free school meal (FSM) data; for every pupil who has been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years, the school is allocated a sum of money. Combined, this adds up to the total Pupil Premium Grant.

71.3% of our school population fall into this category – the National figure is 26.7%.

At Firs Primary School, we recognise that not all pupils who receive FSM are ‘disadvantaged’. We also recognise that there may be disadvantaged pupils who are not eligible for FSM. Pupil Premium funding is allocated, therefore, according to the needs of individuals, groups and classes of children.
