Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.  The amount received is dependent on the number of children who are eligible and have claimed for free school meals at any time in the last six years (this categorisation changed in 2012).  All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.

At Montrose we are committed to meeting the pastoral, social and academic needs of all pupils.  The Pupil Premium forms a vital part of that process.  We also recognise that not all pupils who are disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.  We reserve the right to allocate funding to support any pupil the school has legitimately identified as being disadvantaged.
