The Pupil Premium is extra funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and ensure that they make as much progress as their peers and therefore help close the attainment gap.
Schools receive funding for pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years. Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel. For the year 2016-17 this amount is £1,320 per pupil and £300 for service premium. For those children who are Looked After who have been adopted form care the figure is £1,900.
Marlborough Primary School's total Pupil Premium allocation for 2017-18 is £212,360
All schools have the freedom to spend the Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
