Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools.
It is determined by the number of pupils who have ever been eligible for;
  • Free School Meals,
  • Those pupils from families in the Armed Forces,
  • Those who are Looked After or adopted.
Since September 2014, all 4-7 year olds are now eligible for a free school meal, but Pupil Premium Funding is still available for those pupils whose family receive certain benefits. 
The funding is specifically to target pupils who need it the most and who may require additional teaching to meet their needs. Of course, not all children in these groups require additional support but it enables the school to fund additional teaching time for any pupil who does.
We believe that where possible children should access First Quality Teaching from qualified teachers as well as high quality interventions from trained Teaching Assistants.
Please see our report below for specific details including the latest funding we received, how this was allocated, the impact on progression and effectiveness of the expenditure.
