The 'Pupil Premium' is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools, with the purpose of supporting specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. This includes pupils who are entitled to Free School Meals (FSM) or who have been entitled to Free School Meals in the past, those who are looked after by the Local Authority (LAC) or adopted from Local Authority care and children of armed services personnel. Schools plan how to use this funding to support the needs of the pupils within their own school context.
As well as accelerating progress and raising attainment, the fund is intended to support the social and emotional needs of pupils. At Manorcroft, we adopt a holistic approach to catering for the needs of our pupils, carefully implementing strategies to support their wellbeing so that learning can take place. The use of the funding is based on a thorough evaluation of the outcomes from the previous academic year to help increase opportunity and maximise experiences for the children within our school.
If your child does not receive Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income levels, please contact the Admin Team (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish to take up the offer of the free meal provision, the school may still receive funding to support pupils’ needs.
