Pupil Premium


Total to be received in 18/19 £92,350 which includes funding for Service Children.

The Government introduced the Pupil Premium into main school funding to address inequalities between children registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years or who are looked after or have left local authority care.

Since April 2011 there has also been a Services Pupil Premium in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face, this is available to children with families that are in the armed services or have been in the last 6 years.

The grant may be spent in the following ways:

  • for the purposes of the school; that is, for the educational benefit of pupils registered at that school
  • for the benefit of studentsregistered at other maintained schools or academies
  • on community facilities; for example, services whose provision furthers any charitable purpose for the benefit of students at the school or their families, or people who live or work in the locality in which the school is situated

The grant does not have to be completely spent by schools in the financial year beginning 1 April 2018; some or all of it may be carried forward to future financial years.

At The Misbourne, we work on an individualised approach, reviewing each individual student’s needs.  With all interventions we look at removing concerns you would see if support were not in place to ensure that all PP students have the same opportunities as others.

We utilise funding to target progress and arrange/run personalised interventions as well as support student’s needs with general financial support for trips, music lessons, uniform and equipment for learning.
