Norton Road Primary School

Enabling Our Children To Achieve


Pupil Premium Report

Did you know just registering your child for Free School Meals means that the school gets extra money to support learning?


Norton Road Primary School recognises that all pupils, regardless of their background, should have equal access to a curriculum, which will enable them to reach their maximum potential. The 'Pupil Premium' is Government funding for schools to support pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. 


The following pupils attract Pupil Premium funding:

  • pupils who are eligible for free schools meals (FSM)
  • pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • children looked after by local authorities and referred to as looked-after children (CLA)
  • post-looked after children (post-CLA)


Schools have to use this funding in the best way possible to ensure that disadvantaged learners have the best possible opportunity to achieve as well as those not from disadvantaged backgrounds. 


The coronavirus pandemic has caused a great deal of disruption to education. The recovery premium is designed to help schools to deliver evidence-based approaches for supporting disadvantaged pupils following this period of disruption. 


Recovery premium funding to schools is calculated on a per-pupil basis and our school will receive £145 for each eligible pupil, based on Pupil Premium eligibility. Schools should spend this premium on evidence-based approaches to supporting pupils, in line with the Education Endowment Foundation’s pupil premium guide. 


The Pupil Premium and Recovery Premium Strategy document sets out how this funding will be allocated at Norton Road Primary School .
