Pupil Premium Grant

 

The Pupil Premium is a grant provided to schools and academies for pupils who are on Free School Meals, have been on Free School Meals at some point in the last 6 years, for Looked After Children and for Services Children. The Government provides a further £1345 per child and this money is to be used in narrowing the gap between the progress of pupils who are "disadvantaged".

At Glasshoughton Infant Academy any pupil who is not meeting expected progress will be given a wealth of support and it is our policy that teaching staff, non-teaching staff and governors support pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium and ensure that they do not fall behind.

If you feel that your child is eligible for the Pupil Premium but don't currently claim for Free School Meals, please click here for the application process .
