Pupil Premium

On this page, you can find out how we have allocated the Pupil Premium funding in our school.

Our Pupil Premium Policy is also available to view on our Policies and Documents page. 

Article 18: Parents should always consider what is best for the child.  Governments must support parents by creating support services for children and giving parents the help they need to raise their children.

What is ‘Pupil Premium’?

The ‘Pupil Premium’ is given to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years. The funding is allocated to a range of initiatives aimed at supporting more disadvantaged pupils, to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children and to ensure that they reach their full potential. In addition to FSM the school may also receive pupil premium for any ‘Looked after children’ (Children in Care) or Armed forces children or children who have been adopted, have a residency order or special guardianship.
