Pupil Premium

 

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them.  Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM). In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for FSM within the past 6 years (Ever 6). At present, St Georges does not have any ‘Looked After’ or Service families to qualify for any additional allocation of funding.

It is for 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. However, schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. From September 2012, all schools were required to publish this information on their school website.

The designated Pupil Premium Link Governor is Wioletta Kapadia.

Please see below for information regarding how the pupil premium was spent in the current and last financial year, the impact of this funding, and the plans for future spending.
