The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
More information can be found here.
Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium funding according to how they feel each individual child can best be supported. Below are details of how Geoffrey Field Junior School have spent the funding in 2016/17 and the impact it has had on learning. We also show our plan for spending in this academic year.
