Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools are required to report annually to parents their Pupil Premium allocation, spend and the impact that this money has.

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding. It is a sum of money derived from the number of children eligible for Free School Meals, with parents in the Armed Forces (Service children) and for children in care who have been continuously looked after (CLA). It is designed to address the current underlying national inequalities and close the gap in attainment.

The amount received by the school is calculated using a lump sum per pupil. As a school we have a higher percentage of children in receipt of free school meals when compared with all schools nationally, however due to the small number of individual children in this school eligible, the details of support given below are deliberately general, so as not to identify individuals.  Similarly it is inappropriate to comment publicly on the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils.

In 2018/19 we received £1920 (FSM and Service).  We spent this on additional core curriculum sessions, including individual and small group sessions, and pastoral support.  Funding also provided free school uniform, enrichment, sporting and other activities, including after-school clubs. 

 The Pupil Premium strategy will be reviewed annually in March.

In 2019/20 we will receive £8080 (FSM, CLA, Service).  This will be used in a similar manner to that received in 2018/19.  If you require further information on how we spend pupil premium funding please contact the school office.
