Pupil premium

Hermitage Primary School is in one of the most deprived boroughs in the country and 42% of our pupils are eligible for free school meals (FSM). Thanks to Pupil premium funding we are able to provide a wide range of vital services,interventions and experiences to support these children and their families. 

What is the pupil premium? 

The Pupil Premium is government funding which is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.

The funding is used to close the gap in attainment between these two groups of pupils.

In 2016-17 the level of the premium was £1320 per pupil for pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years. (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been continuously looked after for six months.
