Pupil Premium and Sport Premium
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 last financial year 2022-23 Thomson House School was allocated pupil premium funding of £47,090
Please see below how we spent the allocation during the academic year 2021-22.
