What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to publicly-funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers.
The funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools such as special schools and pupil referral units.

The Pupil Premium is primarily aimed at Reception to Year 11 pupils who are from low-income families and are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been registered for FSM at any point in the past six years.

How do we spend this money?
In 2021-22 the funding contributed towards additional staffing of teachers to work alongside the class teachers and support a range of wider opportunities for pupils. It has also been used to support wider outcomes, giving pupils the opportunity to learn an instrument through the Camden Music Service and enabling them to attend a range of after school clubs. Pupil Premium also enabled children to attend the residential school journey.
How Can You Help?
School funding is based on a formula which, among many other elements, includes the number of children who are entitled to Free School Meals.
Even if your child does not wish to take Free School Meals but is entitled to receive them, it is beneficial to the school for the eligibility to be recorded as we receive additional funding for your child for six years. This is especially important now that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 receive automatic free school meals.
If you think you are entitled to claim for Free School Meals, please call into the school office for an application form or the school office will happily send one to you.
