Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Looked after Children, children adopted from care and Service Forces children. It also includes pupils who have been eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure). 

Pupil Premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units.

If you think your child may eligible to receive this additional funding and support but are not sure whether the  school are aware of this, please speak in confidence to the school office. 


The end of year Pupil Premium Strategy Review will be completed by July 2021

Pupil Premium Allocation and Spending

Summary of the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils at the school:

  • Low level of skills on entry
  • School readiness at each point of entry
  • The growing percentage of children with moderate and significant SEND needs and EHC Plans
  • Mobility
  • Growing number of Fair Access pupils across school, many of who have not attended school previously or been out of education for a considerable period of time.
  • Parents are willing to support the learning of their children but are sometimes limited by their own knowledge of the language and poor grasp of English vocabulary.
  • Pupils are often only supported at home by older siblings, if at all.
  • Extended and unauthorised absences including a significant growth in extended holidays lasting for the 20 days.
  • Deprivation indicators in the local community
  • Expectations and aspirations that parents have of their children and children have of themselves.
