Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to the main school funding, is given to schools to address inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those children who are not. Pupil Premium Funding is used to tackle disadvantage in order to reach the pupils who need it most.

Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Schools are currently given Pupil Premium funding of £1345 per pupil for those whose families have registered for Free School Meals. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years.

If you think your child may be eligible for Pupil Premium funding, please complete the application below.  If you are not sure, please pop into the school office or email office@sheddingdean.co.uk for further information.

Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families. Schools are required to report this information. Please see our pupil premium statement below.
