A list of Disadvantaged students and how they are classed as disadvantaged

Students are classed as disadvantaged if either or both:

  • they were eligible for free school meals at any time during the last six years (Ever 6 FSM or FSM eligible).
  • they are looked after (in the care of the local authority for a day or more or who have been adopted from care).
