Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding

Pupil Premium is additional funding received by school for each pupil from disadvantaged families or backgrounds.  


The funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children who meet one, or more, of the following criteria:

  • eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • children looked after (CLA)
  • adopted from care on or after December 2005
  • from a service family
  • who have been eligible for free school meals at any point within the past 6 years

Pupil premium at Farsley Springbank

At Farsley Springbank, we have high aspirations for all our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We aim to improve the life chances and learning opportunities of pupil premium children.  We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We will also allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged and/or is vulnerable.  As a school we are determined to ensure that our children are given every opportunity to realise their potential so that every child can succeed and 'be the best they can be.'
