Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure
Schools receive extra funding through Pupil Premium for every child registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point within six years and any children who have been in care for six months.
As we recognise that not all pupils who are academically or socially disadvantaged are registered for free school meals, we reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, identified by the school as being at a significant disadvantage.
This page explains how much we receive and how we are using it to benefit pupils at Water Mill.
