PREMIUM STATEMENT 2012-13
The pupil premium is
allocated to schools in respect of children who are currently known to be
eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after
continuously for more than six months. This applies to both mainstream and
non-mainstream settings. In 2012-13 this will also include pupils eligible for
FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure).
The level of the premium in 2012-13 is £619 per pupil for
pupils eligible for free school meals (FSM) and for pupils in care who have been
continuously looked after for six months.
At Middle Street Pupil Premium money is used to ensure all
children receiving free school meals, looked after children and other children
who we consider to be at a disadvantage children are supported in making at the
very least good academic progress, making a minimum of 2 sub levels progress
every school year.
