Talbot House Pupil Premium
The Department for Education (DfE) provides additional funding, known as Pupil Premium, in order that specific groups of pupils aged between 5 and 16 years, who may be disadvantaged by virtue of their family circumstances, can be supported in their progress and attainment. Pupil Premium falls into three categories:
Deprivation Pupil Premium
Looked After Pupil Premium
Service Children Premium
The Pupil Premium funding is not necessarily intended to be specifically allocated to individual pupils and schools have the freedom to decide how it can best be spent on eligible pupils. The impact of individual sums may be limited. Therefore at Talbot House, in common with many schools, we have pooled the allocated monies to maximise the impact on the pupils’ progress and attainment.
