Pupil Premium information
Pupil Premium funding is provided by the Government to facilitate extra support for children who are in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) and Children who are Looked After in Care. At Gladesmore the majority of pupils are eligible for FSM.
Nationally children in receipt of Free School Meals do not perform as well as children from more economically advantaged backgrounds. The Pupil Premium Grant provides the school with the opportunity of providing additional help in many various ways to our children so that we can help them to maximise their achievement.
Each year we evaluate the impact of our efforts to ensure that pupils eligible for FSM achieve highly. This informs our on-going planning to gain maximum benefit from the Pupil Premium Grant. These documents are posted on this website. To find out more information on how the Pupil Premium funding is used at Gladesmore Community School, please see the attachment in the Policies and Documents section under the About Us menu.
We urge all families who might be eligible for Free School Meals to apply. This is a simple process and can be done at the main school Office.
