Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11. 

This additional money is available from central government for every child whose parent is receives certain welfare benefits. It is therefore important to sign up for free school meals, even if your child is in reception, year 1 or year 2. Registering for free meals could raise an extra £1,300 for school, to fund valuable support like extra tuition, additional teaching staff or after school activities.

For more information and to register please speak to the school office.

Main barriers are identified as; high staff turn over and assessment changes. These are being overcome through new staff, staff training and a new tracking system for assessment

The impact of this spending can be seen in our overall results.  

The impact can also be seen by the access to equal opportunities.
