Pupil Premium

At Noremarsh we believe that every child in our community has the right to be inspired by an engaging and purposeful curriculum.

We know that all children are different and have differing needs throughout their time with us.

We are skilled at supporting them and adapting our practice to help them all to achieve success.

As a team we believe there are no outsiders in our community and we do all we can to make all members of our community feel that.

Our strategy for pupil premium sits at the heart of all we do. Our aim is ensuring that:

  • Teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our children.
  • Appropriate provision is made for children who belong to all vulnerable groups, this includes the needs of socially disadvantaged children.
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
  • We know that not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any child or groups of children the school has identified as being socially disadvantaged. 
  • Pupil Premium funding will be allocated based on need. Not all children receiving FSM will receive pupil premium interventions at one time. 

Your involvement as a parent or carer is a key factor in raising standards for your children alongside the expertise of our team. Our parent-teacher consultations provide a really good opportunity to review children’s progress and to consult with you about the intervention strategies that have been used. 

If your child is eligible for Free School Meals, please do register them, even if they are not going to have a school lunch. It has a direct impact on the funding the school receives and will enable us to maximise the support we can provide to our families.

Parents can register their child for Free School Meals if they are in receipt of any of the following benefits:

  • Income Support  
  • Income-based Job Seekers’ Allowance  
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance  
  • Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999  
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit  
  • Child Tax Credit, provided they are not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190, as assessed by HMRC 


Please let us know if you would like help or advice in supporting your child.

You can reach us by contacting your child’s class teacher or through the school office.
