Schools receive additional funding on the basis of the number of students they have who are eligible for Free School Meals or are a Child in Care.
This additional funding is called the Pupil Premium and is aimed at socially disadvantaged pupils
We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils
- We make appropriate provision for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and not all socially disadvantaged pupils will be in receipt of free school meals
- Pupil premium funding will be allocated, therefore, to classes, groups or individuals identified as a priority. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time.

Service Pupil Premium
Eligible schools receive the SPP so that they can offer mainly pastoral support during challenging times and to help mitigate the negative impact on service children of family mobility or parental deployment.
Mobility is when a service family is posted from one location to another, including overseas and within the UK.
Deployment is when a service person is serving away from home for a period of time.
This could be a 6 to 9 month tour of duty, a training course or an exercise which could last for a few weeks.
How Service Pupil Premium differs from the Pupil Premium
The SPP is there for schools to provide mainly pastoral support for service children, whereas the Pupil Premium was introduced to raise attainment and accelerate progress within disadvantaged groups.
Schools should not combine SPP with the main Pupil Premium funding and the spending of each premium should be accounted for separately.
