Pupil Premium and Barriers for Learning

    Pupil Premium Funding 

    The Pupil Premium is ‘additional funding’ for publicly funded schools in England.  It is to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers not just locally but nationally.

    Rossmere Primary School receives pupil premium funding as part of its budget based on the number of children who:

    • Are eligible for Free School Meals
    • Have been eligible for Free School Meals at any time during their time at Primary School
    • Are children of services personnel
    • Have been in or in Looked After Care or a Child Arrangement Order (Previously known as a residence order)

    This was fully reviewed and amended throughout 2020-21 in response to the adverse effect that Covid lockdowns had on the most vulnerable.

    In addition to Pupil Premium funding we also receive Covid Recovery funding. Both are covered in this report.
