What is Pupil Premium?


The Pupil Premium (PP) is funding which is allocated to schools for children who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), those known to have been eligible in the last six years and children of service families.  It was introduced in April 2011 and is intended to narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged pupils and their peers.  Funding is also allocated to schools for previously looked after children (Pupil Premium Plus or PP+) and currently looked after children (Child Looked After or CLA).

At Barwell C of E Academy, the Pupil Premium is used to ensure that all pupils reach their full potential regardless of their social situation.  We can do this through targeted interventions and working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress as well as addressing any attendance issues.


Barwell C of E Academy also recognises the emotional and social needs of some of these children. To that end, we also provide social, emotional and mental health support as well as providing other enriching experiences.
