Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools in England to help raise the attainment of low income pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their background, have the opportunity to reach their full potential academically. Schools are required to use this funding to implement strategies that will benefit eligible pupils and support their progress in various areas, including academic achievement, social and emotional development and extra-curricular activities.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families.  This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit to meet the needs of the children. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school.
