Pupil Premium Information

The Pupil Premium is a grant provided to schools and academies for pupils aged 11 to 16 who are on Free School Meals, have been on Free School Meals at some point in the last 6 years, for Looked After Children and for Services Children. The Government provides a further £1,660 per child and this money is to be used in narrowing the gap between the progress of pupils who are “disadvantaged”.

At Philips High School any pupil who is not meeting expected progress will be given a variety of support for the Pupil Premium students and ensure that they do not fall behind (or catch up if they are behind when they arrive with us).

If you feel that your child is eligible for the Pupil Premium but don’t currently claim for Free School Meals, please click here for the application process​.
