Pupil Premium

At Northburn around 6% of pupils are supported through the Pupil Premium Grant issued by government.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age who are eligible under the following criteria.

  • Low income families who are known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and none- mainstream settings. From 2012-2013 this has also included pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as Ever 6 FSM measure).
  • Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
  • Children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

If you believe you may be eligible fore Free School meals but have not already registered this with us, please do so as soon as possibly because it can help the school to fund additional provision for your child.

At Northburn, these pupils are supported in their education to try to ensure they always reach their potential, despite any barriers they may have.
Their progress is tracked individually to best target support where it is needed.
These pupils are also supported to access a range of opportunities within school- STEM, Music, residential visits, etc.
