What is The Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is funding from the government, designed to help students who are entitled to Free School Meals due to the family financial situation, or who have been registered for Free School Meals within the last 6 years, to do well at school. The children of Armed Forces families, and young people who are in care are also eligible for Pupil Premium funding.
How much Pupil Premium money does our school receive?
In April 2017, we received £12,780 to support the children in our school who are entitled to the Pupil Premium funding during the financial year 2016-2017.
How is the money spent?
Examples of how the money has currently been spent:
- Additional adult support for 1 to 1 and small group interventions
- Purchasing of additional resources to support specific learning needs
- Financial support to aid attendance at extra-curricular school-based activities
- Additional training for staff to better support the pupils’ learning
How will parents know that the money has been well spent and impact it had?
We track pupils’ overall attainment progress four times a year, so we can quickly see the impact our provision is making. Progress is reported to parents at the end of the year, via written a report, as well as our bi-annual Parents’ Evenings.
We complete a Pupil Premium Strategy statement on an annual basis. The latest version can be viewed below:

We are always keen to talk to parents of children who receive Pupil Premium, to ask for their ideas on what they feel is the most effective provision. Your son or daughter may be doing extremely well at school, but there may be things that we can do to stretch them more, to build their confidence, to develop particular skills or to help them raise their aspirations further. If you have particular ideas that you would like to discuss or share with us, please contact Mr. Clarke.
