Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Report for Fred Nicholson School 2018 2019

Pupil premium background

The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that provides additional funding aimed at pupils from deprived backgrounds. The Pupil Premium is provided in order to support pupils in reaching their potential by accelerating their progress, as research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their non‐deprived peers.

The Government has used pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals in the last 6 years and those who are looked after as an indicator for deprivation. Schools receive a fixed amount of money per pupil. This is based upon the number of pupils registered who meet the different     thresholds, Free School Meals, children looked after by the local authority and children whose     parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

Please see the  full Report (Current Year and Prior Year) below which sets out the allocation of the Pupil Premium, how that is used and the outcomes associated
