Information About Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low‐income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals in both mainstream and nonmainstream settings and children who have been Looked After continuously for more than six months

Eligibility for the Pupil Premium Grant is for children who have been entitled for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years (Ever6), as well as to Service children. The Government recognises that children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM.

The level of the free school meals pupil premium in 2017/18 is £1320 per eligible pupil

2017/18 Pupil Premium funding for Gledhow Primary School is £97,458 in total. 

There will be an review of Pupil Premium provision at Gledhow on Friday 12th January 2018 conducted with the support of a school with outstanding pupil premium provision, Pakeman Primary School in London.
