Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to help support pupils who have been registered for free school meals. Schools also receive funding for children who are looked after and children of Service personnel.


Who is eligible for the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for pupils who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals. It is also allocated for children who are being looked after by the Local Authority. The grant this year is £1480 per pupil, from April 2024.

What are the aims of Pupil Premium?
Nationally, there is a gap in attainment between those children who are eligible for Free School Meals and their peers. The main purpose of the Pupil Premium is to close this gap by raising the achievements and aspirations of Pupil Premium children. At Kingsway we ensure each and every child experiences stimulating, memorable and awe-inspiring learning, no matter what their starting point is or differences they may have. We provide enhancement opportunities, which some pupils may otherwise never experience, and believe that school should be a happy, investigative and enquiring time, where there are no limits and there is a thirst for new experiences and knowledge. A primary focus is to raise aspirations, engender a sense of personal pride in achievement, provide a purpose and relevance for learning and ultimately, to help every student find their strengths and interests.
