Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium

The Government believes that Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle the disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it the most.

The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than 6 months, and children of service children personnel.

In 2018/2019 the school will receive £93 700 in pupil premium money. Please read our  Pupil Premium Strategy 2018 - 2019 which explains how we intend to spend this money.  

In 2017/2018 the school received £79 200 in pupil premium money. Please read our Review of Pupil Premium Spend 2017 - 2018 which explains how we spent this money and the impact that it had on our children.  

If you would like further details of the ways in which we support children eligible for Pupil Premium funding, please read our  Pupil Premium Policy or contact Mrs Hamilton via the school office.
