Pupil Premium & Free School Meals
Free School Meals (FSM)
The Academy ensures parents/carers check their eligibility for FSM. We also assure parents that all matters regarding use of this fund are treated with discretion and in confidence.
Pupil Premium Grant (PPG)
The coalition government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) in September 2011 with the purpose of increasing attainment and aspiration for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, specifically;
- To increase social mobility
- To enable more students to go to the top universities
- To reduce the attainment gap
The Kingfisher School receives a Pupil Premium Grant for each child who is entitled to receive Free School Meals and for Looked After Children. The Academy is allowed to allocate the funding as they see fit in order to meet the aims above and are held accountable for the impact of this funding.
