Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).  It has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years and we get extra again for our Forces families.

This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. The impact of our pupil premium spend is to DIMINISH DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GROUPS.

We have a named Governor who has responsibility for ensuring we reach this aim: Mr Peter Rooney. 

In 2016-17 the school has received over £21,600 Pupil Premium Funding. (This increase is due to the Government allocating more money to each pupil eligible for Pupil Premium funding.) We assessed ‘What Works Well’ from previous years and with studying the Department for Education’s research (along with The Sutton Trust’s research of What Works Well nationwide) we continue to evaluate how we use the Pupil Premium funding, so that it continues to have an impact on our pupils.

Strategy to be reviewed September 2017


If your child does not have Fress School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.

Even if you do not wish for your child to have free school meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premioum funding that may be used to help your child.
