Pupil Premium

Pupils eligible to receive Pupil Premium funding are in four groups: those entitled to free school meals (FSM), those who have been entitled to free school meals during the last six years (Ever 6), children in care or looked after children and service children. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between these children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

 

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within our responsibility.

 

At Cumberworth First School we use the funding to raise attainment and engagement through a variety of programmes and activities.
