Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from either: low-income families who are known to be eligible for Free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Though there is no specific directive on how the money should be spent it is clear that the money should be spent on initiatives which narrow the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achievers and to overcome any barriers for learning.

Accessing Pupil Premium Funding

Funding is allocated to the school based on an annual basis. It is important that if you think your child is eligible for pupil premium support, you should contact the school office for more information.

“The pupil premium funding is used well to support individual pupils. They make as good progress as others. The school promotes equality of opportunity and tackles discrimination successfully.”       Ofsted October 2013

 “Pupils supported by school action, school action plus or who have a statement of special educational needs make outstanding progress. The large majority reach nationally expected standards in literacy and mathematics by the end of Year 6. ”   Ofsted October 2013
