The pupil premium grant was introduced in April 2011 and is an additional fund that the government gives to schools for each pupil who is deemed to be eligible (entitled to free school meals, looked after or have a parent in the forces). The money must be spent to support their education, but is for the school to decide how the resource may best be employed.
The Department of Education website is a good source of additional information:
The Priors is a relatively small school, and therefore receives a fairly small amount of money.
Please click on the links below to see how we spent our funding last year, with the plan for spending for this academic year.
Please come and see Mr Emms if you have any questions or you believe your child may be eligible to receive this funding.
