What is pupil premium?
Who is eligible?
The school is awarded the additional funding for children who meet any of the following criteria:
Are currently entitled to free school meals;
Have been entitled to free school meals within the last 6 years;
Are ‘looked after’
Are covered by a guardianship order
Are covered by a residency order
Have been adopted from care.
Whilst Children in EYFS/KS1 currently get Free School Meals it is still important that parents complete an Entitlement Application Form as this can bring in additional funding to help your child reach their full potential.

Service Pupil Premium
Service pupil premium is additional funding for schools, but it is not based on disadvantage. It has been combined into pupil premium payments. The funding is for pastoral support for eligible pupils and is not at the same level of funding as the pupil premium.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch Up Premium
For the academic year 2020 to 2021, Copnor Primary School received £50,000 in additional funding from the Coronavirus (COVID-19) catch-up premium. How this grant will be spent and how the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of the pupils at the school will be measured, is detailed within the Pupil Premium strategy.
