The Manor School has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential, regardless of their economic background or family circumstances.
The Government provides Pupil Premium funding, which is in addition to main school funding, to target specific groups who are vulnerable to underachievement. The money is used to help address national inequalities between the achievements of children who are from low income families and are eligible for free school meals. The money also assists in the education of children who are looked after in care and pupils whose parents have served in the armed forces.
The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools based on the number of students who are known to have been eligible for free school meals over the past 6 years and children who have been continuously looked after for more than six months.
It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual students within their responsibility.
