What is the Pupil Premium?

The purpose of the Pupil Premium grant is to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The premium is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of children who are:

  1. FSM: Those students who are registered for Free School Meals
  2. Ever 6 FSM: Those pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’).
  3. Children of members of Her Majesty's Forces.
  4.  LAC (Looked After Children): Those students who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
  5. Post-LAC including adopted children.

The government says that it is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent., since they are best placed to address what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Eligibility for Free School Meal Support

If your financial situation has changed, or you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, you can contact Mrs Boussida at e.boussida@ivanhoe.co.uk. Registering for free school meals means the school gets extra funding to support your child’s learning, so even if you do not want to utilise the Free School Meals, then registering is still useful to support your child in other ways across the school.
