Pupil premium money is sent to school based on the number of pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any time in the previous six years. In addition to this, the school receives a small amount of money per child whose parents are in the forces or those who have been in the care of the Local Authority for more than six continuous months. This money is allocated to ensure that pupils from lower-income families reach their potential, both academically and socially.
