The Government provides additional funding to schools based on the number of children who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM). This money is used to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Children at De Bohun who receive this funding have a number of barriers to educational achievement, which we address using this funding (please see the table below).
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel.
In most cases the Pupil Premium is paid direct to schools, for every child who receives free school meals. The school decides how to use the funding as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need.
Local authorities are responsible for looked after children and make payments to schools where an eligible looked after child is on roll.
