The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is funding that is given to schools by the Government to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils. In 2012-2013 the Pupil Premium was extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years (Ever6 Free School Meals measure). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuosuly for more than six months, and a smaller amount for the children of service personnel.
If you believe your daughter may be eligible for free school meals and would like more information please visit the Free School Meal Eligibility Checker.
The following documents detail how St Ursula’s Convent School makes use of the funding it gains through Pupil Premium, along with the details of the impact it has on pupils.
