Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain disadvantaged groups of pupils and those who are more well off. Since its inception funding has been allocated on the basis of individual pupils, who were eligible for free school meals, for looked after children in care for more than six months and children whose parents are in the armed forces. In 2014-15 funding was calculated on the basis of £1,300 for each pupil, in 2015 – 16 it rose to £1,320 for each pupil. It is for the schools to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess the additional provision which should be made for individual pupils. (Note: information related to individual pupils remains confidential). 

Below you will find our review of spending for 2018/19 and our statement setting out how we plan to spend our Pupil Premium allocation in 2019/20.  As our numbers are very small, some information has been removed so that individual children cannot be identified.  This information is available from the school.
