Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?   

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Its purpose is to provide additional funding to support schools in raising attainment for those children who are eligible for free school meals, or who are in the care of the local authority. It has been recognised that in general these groups have a lower attainment than those from less disadvantaged backgrounds.  Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to support targeted pupils.

To find out if you are eligible for Free School Meals please click on the link below.

How we allocate Pupil Premium Funding

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


The targeted and strategic use of the pupil premium grant will support us in achieving our school aims, ensuring achievement for all and diminishing the difference.


The pupil premium is allocated to schools for children of statutory school age from low-income families, and to children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and to children whose parents are currently serving in the armed services.
