The Pupil Premium is an allowance allocated to schools for children of school age who are eligible for free school meals, to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months (LAC) and to children whose parents serve in the armed forces.
At Weald we receive the Pupil Premium for each pupil who is eligible for free school meals. In the year 2013-14, this amount was £900 per pupil; in 2014-15, it was £1300 per pupil and in 2015-16, the allocation rose to £1320 per pupil where it has remained. At Weald we have very small numbers of pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium. For looked after children (LAC), the school receives £1200 per pupil.
