Pupil Premium Grant

The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support particular groups of pupils who are known to be at risk of underachievement to diminish the difference in attainment and progress between them and all other children nationally.  

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils, in Years Reception to 11, that are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible for FSM in the past six years (Ever 6). Pupil Premium is also allocated for children who have been looked after by the local authority (CLA) continuously for more than six months. In East Sussex Pupil Premium for CLS is managed by the Virtual School for Children in Care. 

The Pupil Premium has risen since its introduction in 2011 and now means that the school receives £1320 for each child that attracts this additional funding. An Early Years Pupil Premium is also paid for our 3 and 4-year-old children in Nursery.  In 2018/19 this premium will be £300 per child.
