Pupil premium funding is additional money given to schools in England to raise the attainment of eligible pupils and narrow the gap between their attainment and their peers.
The Ilfracombe Academy has a system in place for children that will qualify for Free School Meals, a service which we encourage families to sign up to. Families registering for free school meals is incredibly important to us, as it provides additional “pupil premium” funding for our school, which provides support towards extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities. For anyone attending the Year 8 parents evening tomorrow, the school will have computers in place especially for this, on which you will be able to ‘quick check’ your eligibility for Free School Meals. For this, please ensure you bring with you your NI Number/NASS.
