The Government believes that Pupil Premium ‘is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most’. It is also used to support children who have been adopted, who are ‘looked-after’ or who has a parent in the armed forces. At Malin Bridge Primary School we use this funding to support spending which benefits eligible children within their cohorts, rather than create individual budgets for each child. This spending, including the examples below, significantly enhances our capacity to support children with barriers to their learning.
