Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant

The pupil premium is additional funding received from the Government so that schools can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. It was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years. Looked after children and those of service personnel also attract funding.

Funds for pupil premium come into schools and we are able to decide how to spend the money and use it to support pupils, enrich their life experiences and narrow the attainment gap.

At William Austin we have high aims and aspirations for our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. A commitment to learning and a desire of knowledge allows all children to achieve regardless of who they are and where they come from. Our aim is to support all children in meeting their full potential and allowing them to learn in the best possible way for them.
