Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is funding provided to schools which is additional to main school funding. It is allocated according to the number of pupils on the school roll who are eligible for free school meals (FSM), according to the number of children of service families, children in care or any children who have been in those groups within the last 6 years.  This is because these groups of children are identified nationally as most likely to be achieving less successfuly than other groups in the school.

It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. However, it must be spent in a way that leads to improved attainment and a broadening of opportunities for these disadvantaged pupils.  Governors have a responsibility to make sure that:
- the school identifies these pupils
- the school uses evidence from attainment and from talking to parents to identify the needs of these pupils
- the money is spent directly on these pupils in the way that most effectively supports the identified needs

Our policy on how the Pupil Premium will be spent can be found in the 'Key Documents' section of the website.
