Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium

Pupil Premium Policy                                       

February 2022.


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

The Government decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2013-14 was to be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. As a group, children who have been eligible for FSM at any point in time have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible for FSM. A premium was also introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

School Vision

At Kings Norton Primary School we believe that every child can and should achieve and reach the highest possible outcomes. We aim to ensure that all of our unique young people have a happy and successful time in our school and we are committed to working in partnership with parents and other appropriate agencies in order to achieve this.

Our Mission Statement clearly supports this:


Each child who attends Kings Norton Primary School is a unique person; she or he has skills to be developed, curiosity to be encouraged, challenges to meet and potential to be achieved.  We have the highest expectations of each child

The targeted and strategic use of pupil premium will support us in achieving our vision.



The range of provision the school may consider making for this group could include:
