The Pupil Premium is a government initiative that targets extra money at pupils from deprived backgrounds. Research shows that pupils from deprived backgrounds underachieve compared to their peers. Currently, the premium goes to pupils who are on Free School Meals (FSM) or have been registered for (FSM) in the past six years. Children in care, adopted children and service children also qualify for the Pupil Premium.
At Mayfield Grammar School we use this funding in a variety of different ways to support our students. From access to additional study materials, additional tuition and in class support to accessing enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom, for example music tuition.
