Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is funding allocated to the school from the government to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Schools decide how best to use the funding to improve the outcomes for their pupils in receipt of this. However we are held accountable for how we use this additional funding and are required to publish information about Pupil Premium on our website.

We recognise that not all pupils who receive Pupil Premium are socially disadvantaged or underachieving. SUN Primary School aims to look at every child as an individual, in line with our core values. We will consider the barriers that each eligible child may face and/or enhancements needed to support their educational aspirations and achievements.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. There are four categories of children who qualify for pupil premium:

  • Children who are currently eligible for free school meals (FSM)
  • Children who have been in receipt of free school meals within the last 6 years
  • Looked after children
  • Armed forces children

If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals, please do not hesitate to contact the Headteacher and we will do all we can to support you with your application. Please be assured that any application would be in the strictest confidence. You can also find out more about how to apply for free school meals by following this link to the West Berkshire Website: 


Please see the information below on how the money has been spent in the last academic year and our 3 year Statement of Intent. The impact of these strategies is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they meet the needs of the respective children and to ensure the respective children achieve their full potential.
