Pupil Premium Information



Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding that is provided to schools to support specific groups of children who might be vulnerable to underachievement. Nationally these include pupils who are, or who have previously been, entitled to free school meals (FSM), those who are looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.

Schools are free to decide how to use this allocation, considering how best to support individual pupils with additional provision.

All schools are now required to report on the amount of Pupil Premium funding received and how this funding is being used, as well as the impact of this funding on pupil progress.

The number of pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant within each cohort is very small. Some children face additional barriers to learning which affect their overall progress. Staff accurately target and personalise the support provided and constantly refine the interventions. Each child and family completes a questionnaire to ensure the support provided is targeted to their specific needs.
