Pupil Premium

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

How the money has been spent at Northern Infant School, as well as impact of the interventions put in place, can be seen in the document below.

Service Families

The Department for Education introduced the Service Pupil Premium in April 2011 in recognition of the specific challenges children from service families face.

Schools which have service children can receive additional funding to help support them, particularly at times of mobility or deployment.

At Northern Schools one of the ways in which we use this funding is to provide emotional literacy support (ELSA) for individuals and groups of children, and a special ‘Forces Club’.

If you believe that you qualify as a ‘service family’, and we may not be aware, please let the school office know as this additional funding really does make a difference to our children.
