Pupil Premium


What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a Government initiative designed to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their more economically advantaged peers. Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium provides additional funding to schools to target specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement. These include those children who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) or have been in receipt of free school meals in the last 6 years (Ever 6), Looked After Children and for Children of Service Families.

Thurlton Primary School is committed to ensuring the difference is diminishing for disadvantaged pupils and the Pupil Premium forms a vital part of that process. The Governors reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupils or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.
