What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives and is intended to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds to 'close the gap' through raising attainment and improving progress.


Who is eligible for PP funding?

  • If you are eligible for free school meals, either at the moment or at any point in the last six years (since September 2009).
  • If you are a Looked after Child.
  • If you are adopted from care or have left care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order).
  • If you are a service child, or have a parents who were in the services from January 2011.

Chelveston Road School will use these funds in a variety of ways to provide additional support and intervention for all students, but with a particular focus on those highlighted above.

Once student numbers have been confirmed, we will provide more detailed information as to how we will target the Pupil Premium for best outcomes for our students.
