Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Pupil Premium funding is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support children who are vulnerable to underachievement and to support the narrowing of the achievement gap.


Pupil premium is funding the government have allocated to pupils in the following categories:


  • Pupils who have applied for and meet the criteria for free school meals (FSM)
  • Pupils in local authority care
  • Pupils from a military family


This money is allocated to schools budgets based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are in the above categories. From 2012 – 13, it has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the

last 6 years.  It is up to the school to decide how the money should be spent.  In our school the money is allocated to initiatives to support pupils in reaching their potential both academically and socially.


Nature of support

In order to raise the attainment of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding we as a school ensure that;


  • We raise pupils self- esteem and attitudes to learning
  • Appropriate staff are aware of children who are vulnerable
  • Progress of this group of children is rigorously monitored at half termly pupil progress meetings
  • Appropriate provision is put in place to support children to make progress
  • Parents and Carers are provided with progress information and share in their child’s learning
