Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to schools to support groups of pupils. It is often used as a general term to describe the funding for children with a parent in the armed forces and for children from families in reciept of certain benefits.
Talavera Infant School is situated on army land and serves many of the service families who live on the Aldershot Garrison. Service Children in Education (SCE) make up approximately 70 - 80 % of the pupil population. The school recieves additional funding to support these pupils in school. This is known as 'Service Premium.'
Service Premium is spent in the following ways:
- helping children settle into school quickly
- interventions and resources to help children cope with the academic changes of moving schools and countries
- emotional support to help children develop friendship skills and to cope with the deployment of parents and other family members.
The school has a number of children registered as having what was known as 'Free School Meals'. This refers to pupils who's parents are, or have been in reciept of certain benefits. The school recieves funding known as 'Pupil Premium' to support children in school.
