Pupil Premium Grant

Pupil Premium funding is additional funding given to schools to support pupils who are eligible.  There are a variety of reasons why your child may be entitled to this funding which includes:

  • If they are on Free School Meals or have been at any point in the last 6 years
  • If they are a Looked After Child (in the care of the Local Authority)
  • If they have previously been a Looked After Child and are now adopted from care or are under a Special Guardianship Order or a Child Arrangements Order or a Residence Order
  • If they have a parent in the military or has been in the military over the past 5 years or are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence 


Pupil Premium At Rufford CE Primary School

We are passionate about ensuring that our Pupil Premium Pupil's are well supported through a range of targeted strategies which are reviewed regularly by Senior Leaders and Governors.  Strategies are evidenced based and our school leaders take into account national research as well as reviewing approaches that have been used in school to determine whether they have been effective for our children or not.
