Pupil Premium at New Fosseway
*Valuing the Individual, Achieving Together*
The Government has introduced the term 'Pupil Premium' to encompass all students who are Children in Care (CiC), currently receive Free School Meals (FSM), or have done at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6), or have parents who are actively serving in the Armed Forces, have died in action or left the Service since April 2011 due to injury (Armed Forces). These groups were specified by the Government as they generally have poorer academic results than those pupils who have never belonged to those groups. The Government felt that these pupils should benefit from the additional support the Pupil Premium funding will be able to provide.

All students identified as being in the Pupil Premium cohort will benefit from additional academic support and encouragement to ensure that they have a positive and successful learning experience. We aim to close any gap in attainment and achievement between them and their non-Pupil Premium peers. Financial support is also available.
If your child is within the Pupil Premium cohort (CiC, FSM, Ever 6 or Armed Forces), then subject to approval we are able to fund any school event that links to the curriculum whether inside or outside of school. Please contact Family Link Workers if you require any further information.
