In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. At Garden Fields School we receive a sum of money every year based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Children Looked After (CLA) and armed forces children. From 2012-13, Pupil Premium funding was expanded to include funding for all our pupils who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
We allocate our funding to initiatives which support those pupils in reaching their full potential, both academically and socially.

You can find out more about Pupil Premium on the Department of Education Website.
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding to all state maintained schools to assist with the delivery, opportunity and availability of sport and PE. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
