Pupil Premium

 

What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is in addition to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been in looked after care (LAC) for more than 6 months.

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. Below is a summary of how the Pupil Premium has been spent.

There are currently 43 pupils who qualify for Pupil Premium funding at Mossbrook School.
