The Pupil Premium is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between children from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers. If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been looked after for one day or more (Child Looked After), the school receives an amount per head within their budget. A provision is also made for children who have a parent in the armed services.
At Medway UTC we plan ahead strategically to make the best possible use of the Pupil Premium fund and ensure that every child can make great progress. Please read the information below which gives details of how we allocate the funding.
