What is Pupil Premium Funding?
The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
Children eligible for free school meals
For any child who has been eligible for free school meals at any point during the last 6 years, the school receives £1320 annually. If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals or are unsure, please contact Mrs Wilford or Mrs Proudlock in the school office.
Children from Service Families
Pupils from Service families also attract Pupil Premium funding at the level of £300 per child. This money is to be used to support pupils’ pastoral needs, for example during times of parental deployment or during a move to, or away from, our school.
Ofsted Inspections – Ofsted’s school inspections report on the attainment and progress of disadvantaged pupils who attract the pupil premium.
Performance Tables – these show the performance of disadvantaged pupils compared with their peers.
Reports to parents – Schools maintained by the local authority must publish their strategy for using the pupil premium on their website. Ours can be found below.
