Pupil Premium

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding.  

Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. From April 2012 this was extended to include pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). The level of the premium was £488 per eligible pupil for 2011/12 and £623 for 2012/13. The Government has set the premium for service children at £250 per eligible pupil. In 2013/14 the level of funding was increased to £900 and £300 for service children. From April 2014   funding increased further to £1,300 for primary children and then to £1,320 from 1st April 2015

How we use our Pupil Premium Funding

How well do our disadvantaged pupils do? 

The impact in educational attainment from expenditure of the pupil premium funding is reflected in the results of the school. The school has extensive monitoring and support systems in place to ensure favourable outcomes for the most vulnerable pupils. Pupil data is available on the SATs Results page of this website.

Our strategy for the school's use of Pupil Premium funding is constantly evaluated and reviewed termly by the Governing Body and Senior Leadership Team.

If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
