Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive additional funding for any pupils who have been eligible for free school meals during the last six years; pupils who are looked after by the local authority or who are in care and for pupils from families where a parent serves in the armed forces. Further details of how the school uses this funding can be found in the document attached at the bottom. PLEASE NOTE this is different than Universal Free School Meals which EVERY child is eligible for up until the end of Year 2.

Free school meals

Schools get £1,345 for every primary age pupil, who claims free school meals, or who has claimed free school meals in the last 6 years.

Looked-after and previously looked-after children

Schools get £2,345 for every pupil who has left local authority care through adoption, a special guardianship order or child arrangements order.

Local authorities get the same amount for each child they are looking after; they must work with the school to decide how the money is used to support the child’s Personal Education Plan.

During the academic year 2020-21 our school received a total of £21,795

This money was used to run additional intervention groups and fund enrichment opportunities to help disadvantaged pupils overcome any barriers to academic and educational achievement.
