Trowell C of E Primary School - Pupil Premium Funding
The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from Reception to year 11.
Pupil Premium is an additional sum given to schools for each child who qualifies for free school meals. The money is spent on providing children from poorer families with the same opportunities as those from more affluent backgrounds, ensuring that birth and social background do not hold young people back from achieving their potential. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit but are accountable for how they have used it to close the educational gaps for vulnerable pupils. From September 2012 schools are required to publish how they have used the Pupil Premium.
For the financial year April 2019 to March 2020 our school will receive approximately £18,960.
The percentage of our pupils known to be eligible for pupil premium funding is around 5% with the national percentage being 15.2%.
