Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy 2019-20

The 'Pupil Premium' Grant was introduced by the government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in raising the attainment of children who receive free school meals, children in local authority care (Pupil Premium Plus), children who have been adopted (Pupil Premium Plus) or children from families who are serving in our forces. This eligibility also extends to children who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever-6 pupils).

These groups of children have been identified nationally as achieving at a lower level than children from less disadvantaged backgrounds, therefore the intention of Pupil Premium funding is to enable schools to offer enhanced provision and 'bridge the gap' between our most disadvantaged children and their non-disadvantaged peers.

In the academic year 2019-2020, we had 15 children who qualified as 'Pupil Premium' in school, which equated to £19,800 of funding.
 
In the academic year 2019-2020, we had 7 children who qualified as 'Pupil Premium Plus' in school, which equated to £16,100 of funding.
 
Each academic year, our school publishes 'Pupil Premium' and 'Pupil Premium Plus' strategy documents which detail the amount of funding that we receive, as well as how we intend to spend the premium and our rationale for why we are choosing to spend it in this way in order to overcome the barriers to educational achievement that our eligible pupils face.
