Pupil Premium

... extra funding to tackle disadvantage


Pupil Premium Funding was introduced to improve outcomes for disadvantaged learners, and to close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Funding is allocated to schools to provide additional support to children from the following groups:

  • Children from families with low income;
  • Children who have been subject to a residency order or been adopted after being in care since 2005;
  • Children with parents in the armed forces

The allocation and monitoring of the impact of Pupil Premium Funding is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the Governors.

At Meridian Primary School the Pupil Premium Funding has been allocated to facilitate access to education and the curriculum, provide additional teaching and learning opportunities and additional support and intervention. Our aim is to improve progress and attainment for all children and to narrow the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers.
