Pupil Premium & Free School Meals

The government allocates additional money to schools to support students from low-income families. The aim is to narrow the disadvantage gap by addressing inequalities, accelerate progress and raise the academic achievement of this cohort of students.

Pupil Premium (PP) Funding is allocated to:

  • Students who are entitled to free school meals (FSM)
  • Student who have received free school meals in the last six years (FSM6)
  • Looked after children (CLA)
  • Previously looked after children (PCLA)
  • Services children who have received free school meals in the last 6 years (SP)

If you think your child may qualify for Pupil Premium assistance please complete the Free School Meals application form below.

Pupil Premium Spending

Schools have autonomy to determine how best to use this funding. There is, however, an obligation for all schools to publish, annually, a report on how the PP funding has been spent or is planned to be spent and what has been the impact on PP students’ academic performance in previous years.

When judging how successful the school has been in closing this gap, the results of our PP students are compared to the national average of non-PP students, particularly when reviewing the cohort’s performance in Maths and English GCSE, and the progress that they have made from Key Stage 2.

Support for Pupil Premium Students

At Tring School we follow The EEF Guide to the Pupil Premium. This a practical guide to support schools to develop their pupil premium strategy based on the best evidence, and to meet updated DfE requirements. PP funding is used to raise the attainment of students identified as PP.
