Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium funding and how we allocate it.

If you would like a modified or enlarged paper copy of any of the documents below,  please do not hesitate to contact the administration team in the school office.

What is it?


The pupil premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children that are in care or adopted and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.


Why has it been introduced?


The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between disadvantaged children and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. Whilst schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit we are required to publish this online.

For the academic year 2022 - 2023 the school has  £194,477 Pupil Premium funding.

The percentage of our pupils known to be eligible for free school meals is 59%.


Please see the Pupil Premium and Recovery Fund Strategy plans below for more information on barriers to learning and how the school is spending the funding.
