Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding the school receives. It is targeted at students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as children from less deprived families.
At present, the funding is worth £1,320 per child for children who at any time in the past 6 years have qualified for Free School Meals (FSM). In addition, the school can receive £2,300 for any looked after child (who has been looked after for one day or more), was adopted from care on or after December 2005, or who has left care under a Special Guardianship or Residence order.
There is also £300 of funding available for Service children and children in Early Years who meet the qualifying criteria.
If you believe your child meets the qualifying criteria but the school is unaware, please come to the school office and ask to speak to someone in confidence.
For more information about how the school uses the Pupil Premium funding, please see below.
The school is currently waiting for support from an NLE with regards to Pupil premium funding and improving outcomes. This has been provided by the DFE as part of Tier 1 support for schools with 'Requires Improvement' OFSTED grading.
