Pupil Premium Reports

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools to work with students who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for students who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

Blatchington Mill School is eligible for Pupil Premium funding and the following reports provide details on the amount of funding and how it is used:

Help the school get more money!

Schools get additional funding for each and every student that is eligible for free school meals.

At Blatchington Mill School and Sixth Form College we use this money carefully to support student needs and to ensure progress for all.

Brighton and Hove City Council have a simple and confidential application process and can quickly give you an answer. As well as receiving subsidised school lunches your child or young person could then be eligible for assistance with the cost of some extracurricular activities and trips.

School budgets are being set now and so it is an ideal time to apply.

If you have already applied there is no need to repeat the process.
