Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium funding is additional funding allocated to all schools to support disadvantaged pupils. Gosberton Academy receives pupil premium for: children that are cared for or adopted from care; children whose parents are in the armed forces; and for every pupil who has received free school meals over the past 6 years.

How can I find out if my child is entitled to the Pupil Premium funding?

Please look at the information on the Local Authority website for guidance and help.

How is the funding used?

These funds are in addition to the main academy budget. It is for schools to decide how Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the children within the responsibilities.
