Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium is a source of additional funding that has been made available to schools by the Government. This funding is based on the number of children who are either in receipt of free school meals or, who have been in receipt of free school meals in the past six years. Funding is also available for children who are or have been looked after, as well as the children of regular members of the armed services.

Nationally, statistics show that pupils who are eligible for free school meals have lower levels of achievement than those who are not eligible. The aim of the Pupil Premium Grant is to help schools to narrow this gap.

Sudbourne School believes that the needs of all our pupils are important and we strive to support each and every one to achieve their full potential. We are committed to using the resources made available to us to help achieve the best outcomes for all learners, including those who would attract Pupil Premium.

Our commitment to the attainment and progress of our disadvantaged pupils has been recognised for the past three years in letters sent by the Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools and, the Rt Hon Sam Gyimah MP, Under Secretary of State for Children and Education.

For information on how we spent the Pupil Premium Grant last year, the impact that it has had, and our plans of how we plan to spend the grant in this current year, please download our PUPIL PREMIUM GRANT report below.
