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.

The school receive the following funding for pupil premium:

- £1,320 for primary-aged pupils

Schools will continue to receive £2,300 for each child who: has been looked after for 1 day or more; has been adopted from care; has left care under a special guardianship order; a residence order; a child arrangement order

During the academic year 2018/19  our school received a total of £19,005

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