School Pupil Premium and Sport Premium

PUPIL PREMIUM EXPENDITURE AT THOMSON HOUSE SCHOOL 

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. 

The Government believes that schools should decide how the Pupil Premium is allocated and spent, since it is felt that they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium. 

Some of the support and resources funded by the pupil premium also benefits children who may not necessarily be eligible for the premium but have been identified by the school as being at a disadvantage compared to their peers. 

In the current financial year 2016-2017 Thomson House School has been allocated a pupil premium payment of £13,600. 

Please see below how we intend to spend this allocation during the academic year 2016-17:
