The Pupil Premium at Gartree
The Pupil Premium is additional funding that the school receives from the Department for Education (DfE) for students who are in care, on free school meals (FSM) or have been FSM at any point in the last 6 years. The Pupil premium is used to provide additional support and assist in raising achievement for those students that need it most, for example meeting all or part of the cost of educational trips or materials for children on FSMs. We have also provided targeted extra support to raise attainment in some subjects for students who qualify for pupil premium. Parents are encouraged to register their child as eligible for FSMs, if applicable, as this will mean that the school receives its maximum entitlement and also students on FSMs can access additional support and resources. There may be financial assistance available for Pupil Premium pupils for school trips but individual enquiries to the school should be made regarding this assistance.
