Pupil Premium at Urchfont CE Primary School
In 2011 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This is additional funding given to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These groups of children are those entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the Local Authority and the children of armed service personnel.
All schools have a statutory duty to report on the amount of funding received, how it is being spent and the impact this has made.
Our school has a very small proportion of children who are eligible for Pupil Premium :
In the academic year 2021/22: 7.2% for free school meals, 6.25% for children of military personnel and 0.1% for pupils who attract other forms of pupil premium funding such as EAL or FSM6. The grant allocated to the school was £19,725.
In the academic year 2022/23: 5.3% for free school meals, 5.3% for children of military personnel and 0.43% for pupils who attract other forms of pupil premium funding such as EAL, Adoptive or FSM6. The grant allocated to the school was £19,725.

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals because of your family’s income level (even if you do not wish your child to have the meal) your application would mean the school could claim Pupil Premium funding that could be used to help your child. Please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.
