Pupil Premium

Our school receives additional funding via the Pupil Premium to help ensure that all groups of children have the opportunity to achieve well.  Funding is linked to the number of pupils who take free school meals, are ‘Looked After’ or belong to ‘Service Families.’ 

The Pupil Premium is an amount of money allocated by the Government to schools for:

  • Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months
  • Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces

The DFE offer the following guidance on how the Pupil Premium is to be spent:

“In most cases the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility…[Schools] will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low income families.”

The purpose of the information in the documents available to download from this page is to inform parents, carers and governors how much Pupil Premium and Sports Premium was received by Falconer's Hill Academy, how it was spent and the impact it had on pupils’ achievement. It also outlines the proposal for how Pupil Premium will be spent.

A detailed breakdown of the Pupil Premium and Sports Premium plans are available to download from the left-hand side of this page.
