Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium, which is in addition to the main school funding, is allocated to schools to support the learning of children from low income families. These are children who are to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who have been ‘looked after’ continuously for more than six months.
This year we have developed a pupil premium strategy that focuses on targeted support for our most disadvantaged pupils, that spans the next three years. For a detailed analysis of our intentions, please click on the link below.

Pupil Premium Report
In 2019 - 2020 Pupil premium funding has been used for the adult support with children in a class situation where children that have funding also have areas where they need support with their learning. The funding is also used to support families when paying for school trips, music lessons and other clubs that come with a cost. Sometimes we look at hardware resources that funded children would benefit from and use some of our funding to enable us to make purchases in this area. The school pays into a service level agreement with an educational psychologist and if pupil premium children are involved with external assessments carried out by the educational psychologist then funding is used to help with this cost too. Finally, if there is training required for staff to be able to support a pupil/pupils that are funded, funding can support this cost too.
