Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is government money designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well at school. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, are in care or have parents in the armed forces.

How much pupil premium money do we get?

2017-18 academic year:  £292,160

How is it spent?

We talk to parents and carers of children receiving the funding, to ask for their ideas on what will most help. Some children will already be doing well in English, Maths or other subjects but there may be things we can do to stretch them further, to help them aim high, or to build their confidence - like having a mentor, visits outside of school or taking part in activities to develop social or language skills.

Some children may need financial help so that they can take part in trips and activities. If children are behind in English, Maths or other subjects, we can arrange for them to have special small group or one-to-one teaching which we call ‘intervention programmes’. We choose the classroom approaches and intervention programmes that research shows work.
