Pupil Premium Strategy

Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school's budget, which is given to schools to improve the educational outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. 

Please read the information below to see how we use our Pupil Premium funding.

Is my child eligible for Free School Meals?

All children at Key Stage 1 access a free lunch through the government's Universal Free School Meals Scheme.
This is different and seperate from Pupil Premium Free School Meals (PPFSM), which also provides funding for their education. A child may be entitled to PPFSM if you get any of the following;

  • Income support
  • Income Based Job seekers Allowance
  • Child Tax Credit Only ( with income up to £16,190) with no element of Working Tax Credit
  • National Asylum Seekers Support
  • Guarantee Element of the State Pension Credit
  • Employment and Support Allowance (income related)
  • Universal Credit (income dependant)

At Little Digmoor, Mrs Heaton is our Pupil Premium Champion and Miss Schofield is the Designated Teacher for looked after children (and previously looked after children).
