Schools are required from September 2012 to report online how they have used the Pupil Premium and the impact it has had on pupil achievement.
Additional Funding for the School
Every year the school receives additional funding, known as Pupil Premium. This is given towards the education of identified pupils, whose families are in receipt of certain benefits, to enhance their learning experiences with the ultimate goal of raising achievement. At Forres Primary School we measure the impact of Pupil Premium on a termly basis. This academic year the school has received £116,000 of Pupil Premium Grant. This is based on a sum amount of £1320 per child for children recorded as Ever 6 FSM, £300 for pupil whose parents are serving in the armed forces and £1900 for children who are looked after.
Schools, Headteachers and teachers have to decide how to use the Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for individual pupils within their responsibility.
