Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to help improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. The Pupil Premium grant allocates funding to schools on the basis of the number of their pupils deemed to come from disadvantaged backgrounds and asks schools to demonstrate how the money is helping to close the gap between them and their peers. Pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals or have been eligible for Free School Meals during the previous six years (known as Ever 6), receive Pupil Premium funding, as are children whose Parents/Carers are in the services. Children who have been Looked After for one day or more, were adopted from care, have a special guardianship order or a residence order receive Pupil Premium Plus funding.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy outlines how we are using the Pupil Premium grant to provide high quality teaching for all, targeted support and other approaches to narrow the attainment gap. As a school, we believe that all pupils, irrespective of background, should feel a sense of belonging and that high quality and inclusive teaching should make learning accessible for all children.


Mrs Duke is currently our Pupil Premium Champion and our next Premium Review will take place in December 2023.
