The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.
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.
At Mary Tavy and Brentor Primary School:
Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. We receive funding based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
We encourage all parents and carers who think they maybe eligible to apply for free school meals when they enrol their child in school or at any point due to changing personal circumstances, as this can help your child to attract additional ‘pupil premium‘ funding to support learning.
Apply through the Devon Citizens Portal. This is the quickest and easiest way to apply and will result in you getting an instant decision. Alternatively, call the Education Helpline on 0345 155 1019. Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Davies if you have any queries.
