Pupil Premium

How does Pupil Premium work?

Schools are given funding by the government for all children who have been entitled to free school meals during their time at primary school. This amount works out at approximately £1320 per eligible child. Schools then need to plan how this money is used effectively so that these children make good progress during their primary school.  At Pelsall Village we try our best to make sure that any barriers to learning are addressed and removed as much as possible and provide learning experiences such as the creative curriculum activities that may otherwise be unavailable to some children.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
