Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is an additional sum of money allocated to the school budget for children from low-income families who are currently eligible for free school meals and for looked after children. There is also a smaller sum of money allocated to children from Service Families. Currently the school receives £1300 per pupil premium child, £1900 for a looked after child and £300 for a service child.

In the financial year 2015-16, Park Primary was allocated a pupil premium of £103,740.

The percentage of children eligible for pupil premium was 40%

The school can decide how to spend the pupil premium because they know the needs of the children in the school and how they can use the additional funding to support them.
