Every child who has been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years is given £1,320 of specific funding to ensure that they achieve the best possible progress and attainment. This also applies to children that have been in care for over six months and there is a grant for children of service families.
Each year we write a plan of how best to use the Pupil Premium Grant for the benefit of those pupils eligible for the grant. We review this at the end of each year. From 2021-22, the strategy document includes the plan for Recovery / Catch-up, in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
