Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the government. The children who are eligible for this grant are those who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM) or who have been eligible in the last six years of their education (from September 2012). It also includes any children who have parents in the Armed forces or students who are identified as being in foster care (looked after children). Each school has the freedom to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per pupil, is spent, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at their school.

Pupil premium statement 2018-19

Background InformationThe Pupil Premium, which is in addition to main school funding, was introduced in April 2011. It is allocated to pupils from low- income families, currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months and for pupils of Service families.
In 2014, schools received additional funding through Pupil Premium Plus, for children adopted from care. Schools are free to decide how to best use the premium but it should be spent in order to improve educational attainment of children from less privileged backgrounds.To find out more information about eligibility for Free School Meals, please visit the North Tyneside website.
