Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Pupil Premium Statement


The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to the main school budget. It is calculated according to the number of pupils on roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), pupils of service families and for each pupil who has been 'Looked After' (in care) or adopted. This funding also extends to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point within the past 6 years, and service family pupils within the past 6 years.


If you think that you may be eligible for free school meals please register using the easy online link below:

For this online service all you need to do is enter your name, National Insurance number or Asylum number, address and your child’s details. Then press submit and find out if you are eligible. If the result comes back found, this means your child is eligible for FSM and the system automatically tells the school.


Schools decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since it is recognised that they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, schools are accountable for how they have used this additional funding to support the pupils identified. The Pupil Premium is helping to ensure pupils enjoy their time at Wicor Primary School; that they like coming to school and are making good progress.
