Pupil Premium Summary

The Pupil Premium Grant is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding.  It is allocated according to the number of pupils on-roll who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) within the last 6 years.  Pupil Premium payments are also allocated to children of service families and pupils who are ‘Looked After’ (in care) or adopted. 

In February 2021, the government also announced a one-off recovery premium as part of its package of funding to support education recovery.The recovery premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools in the 2021 to 2022 academic year. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils. 

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Our Pupil Premium Lead is Mrs Amy Brouard and our Pupil Premium governor is Mrs Claire Wenglorz.  Both work effectively together with staff across Castle Cary Primary School to ensure that this grant is utilised to best meet the needs of our Pupil Premium Children.
