Pupil Premium Funding 2017-2018

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is designed to ensure that the funding given to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. This funding is allocated to support pupils who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), are looked after (CLA) or have parents currently in the armed forces. The money is used to tackle under achievement and close attainment in line with National expectations.

For the academic year 2017 to 2018 the allocation for Marshland St James is £33,000. We currently have 19 children on our pupil premium register.

For the academic year 2016-2017 the allocation for Marshland St James was approximately £34,600.
