Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

Poole Grammar School is dedicated to ensuring all students achieve, regardless of their background. The school prides itself on providing a first-class education for the Borough of Poole since 1904, through the implantation of a knowledge rich curriculum, bolstered by quality first teaching. This is established through  a combination of quality first teaching alongside excellent pastoral support, high quality careers guidance and bespoke provision to meet the needs of all learners.

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of money that is given to schools to specifically assist children that fall into at least one of the following groups:

  • They are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • They have been eligible within the last six years for FSM
  • They have been identified as a Looked After Child (LAC)

The amount that we currently receive for pupils within these groups is £955 per student. This money is specifically designed to help us to raise the achievement level of the students in these groups which has previously been identified as being disadvantaged through economic hardship.

We would like to remind parents that if they feel they may be eligible for free school meals they should contact BCP Council using the provided link.

To apply for FSM, please follow this link [https://online.bcpcouncil.gov.uk/services/freeschoolmeals/  ]

The Service Pupil Premium

The Service Pupil Premium is an allocation of money that is given to schools to specifically assist children that fall into at least one of the following groups:

  • They have parents currently serving in the armed forces (SCIE)

The amount we currently receive for pupils within this group is currently £310 per student per year. This money is specified to help with the emotional and social well-being of these pupils.
