Pupil Premium - use it to fund the Nutrition Program

Posted on September 17, 2015 by Jenny Ridgwell | 0 Comments

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.

Schools receive the Pupil Premium each academic year from the government - the amount being determined by the number of students receiving Free School Meals.

This funding makes sure that students who receive free school meals are not at a disadvantage compared with others.
2015 - 16 £935 per pupil years 7-11 in mainstream schools.

The grant may be spent by maintained schools for the purposes of the school; that is to say for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school, or for the benefit of pupils registered at other maintained schools.

Funding can be used to

  • help staff provide support before and after school
  • one to one tuition, paired reading, catch up projects
  • provide resources to support learning - including the Nutrition Program
  • resources for revision and immersion sessions linked to final exams - see our Ridgwell Press revision guides
