The Pupil Premium Grant is allocated to schools at the beginning of each financial year. The allocation is decided by a fixed amount per child, when the family is entitled to free school meals. Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium grant as they see fit. The Head Teacher has absolute discretion to decide, using all reasonable endeavours, how best the Pupil Premium be spent to benefit each child.
The Head Teacher will, so far as reasonable and practicable, consult with the leadership team, governing body, all staff and/or other interested parties, to assist them in making a well informed decision.
There is a higher percentage of children at Hanley Swan Primary School allocated Pupil Premium than the national average.
