What is Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is additional school funding allocated to provide extra support to pupils on roll from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM), or those pupils who have been in receipt of FSM in the past six years. This funding is also available for pupils in Local Authority care who have been looked after for more than six months and those.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they wish but should demonstrate and promote an aim to improve the attainment and outcomes of pupil’s from deprived backgrounds. Research suggests that that this group of pupils underachieve compared to non-eligible pupils and therefore this money should be spent on strategies which enable and support the ‘narrowing of the gap.’  The spending will also be monitored in terms of its impact: this could be tracking attendance, behaviour or attainment for example depending on where it has been decided for the money to be spent. 

The below documents provide a range of pupil premium related information including: about how much money our school receives, how it is spent and how eligible pupils perform in national statutory assessments alongside an evaluation of our spending and its impact.
