What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It was introduced by the Government in 2011 to give schools extra allowance for children who:
- were registered as eligible free school meals in the last 6 years
- had been looked after continuously for 6 months or longer
- have parents that serve in the armed forces
At Netley Abbey Infant School we believe that each child should have a secure and caring environment in which they re valued and respected as individuals. We encourage and support personal achievement and the development of independence and personal responsibility. We value close and positive relationships with parents and people in the wider community who work in partnership with the school, to enrich and expand the educational experiences of disadvantaged children in our school. We deliver high quality teaching and offer a stimulating and challenging curriculum. At all time, we endeavour to create a happy, safe and positive atmosphere throughout the school.
It is really important to every school that every child who is eligible for 'Free School meals@ is registered with the school. To be eligible, the family must be in receipt of certain benefits. If you think you might be entitled and are not currently claiming, please contact our school office.
