The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding received by schools based on the number of children eligible for Free School Meals.
At Pentland, the use of the Pupil Premium is carefully planned to provide additional educational support to raise the progress and achievement of all pupils within our school. The use of the funding can alter year by year, according to the specific needs of different groups of children at any given time.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
