The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
Our school’s objective in spending our Pupil Premium (PP) is to ensure that all children in receipt of free school meals (or who have been previously), those from service families or children who have been ‘looked after’ (in social care) are attaining their full potential with the ultimate goal of all children reaching or exceeding age related expectations.
The proportion of pupils for whom the school receives the pupil premium is average compared to schools nationally.
Information about eligibility for Free School Meals and how to apply is available on the school’s website or from the school office. A school continues to receive funding for six years after a child no longer has eligibility for free school meals (this is known as ‘Ever6’ funding). Please read our 'Pupil Premium Strategy Statement' below for more information.
