Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding to help schools close the attainment gap between pupils from low-income and other disadvantaged families and their peers.

If a child has been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point over the past 6 years or has been continuously looked after for at least 6 months (LAC) the school receives an amount per head within their budget, however parents and carers are encouraged to register in order to raise this money for our school.

We are committed to ensuring maximum progress for all groups of pupils and strive to close any gaps. We actively promote equality of opportunity for all staff, governors, pupils and parents, creating a harmonious learning community where all can succeed.

We have a clear, strategic approach to the use of specific Pupil Premium funding and plans are integrated into wider school support and improvement systems. These are monitored and evaluated regularly and in-depth data analysis ensures that the correct support and strategies are identified to maximise progress.

Strong leadership systems ensure that Pupil Premium funding has the necessary impact. This includes an identified governor having responsibility for Pupil Premium, the Deputy Head Teacher leading the development plan and a coordinated strategic leadership approach to implementing plans. All matters relating to the Pupil Premium are reported back to the Governors, ensuring that the school is held to account for the impact of spending.
