Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium gives schools and schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and is allocated according to:

  • The number of pupils who are eligible for free school meals (including those who have been eligible for the last 6 years)
  • The number of children of service families
  • Each pupil who has been “looked after” (in care) for six months

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent but the purpose of the Pupil Premium is to help schools to provide targeted support for vulnerable children.

We are committed to ensuring all our children make the best possible progress. We track the achievement of every child on a regular basis and do all we can to make sure each child achieves their potential. The Pupil Premium funding allows us to continue and extend what we already do – to monitor children’s progress and to give additional support when required.  We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly, and in depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress.
