The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals and those looked after by the local authority.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is used. At Skelmanthorpe First and Nursery School we currently use the additional funding in the following ways.
