Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is Pupil Premium?
In April 2011 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money was allocated to children from low-income families who were currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who had been looked after continuously for more than six months.From April 2012, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years (called Ever 6 children). At St Margaret’s at Troy Town, we use this money to support children to reach their full potential; both academically and in their well-being. In 2012/13 the school received £29,904 in Pupil Premium funding. This money was used to build on staffing, strategies and interventions to improve the progress and attainment of some of our most vulnerable children. A further £47,100 in 2013/14, and £67,900 for 2014/15, has allowed us to continue to develop the staffing, strategies and interventions in place and to target additional needs as they are identified.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register.
