Pupil Premium funding is additional to main school funding. It is seen as a way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage, reaches the pupils who need it the most.
Since being introduced in April 2011 the Pupil Premium is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.
We track all children very closely to monitor their progress. To identify the impact this additional funding has, we specifically monitor groups in receipt of extra support this funding helps us to provide. For details of the progress made by these groups please contact the Headteacher.
Details of how we spend our Pupil Premium funding can be found in the document below entitled 'Disadvantaged Pupil Spend April 2015-16'. A projection of how we plan on spending the Pupil Premium funding can be found in the 'Disadvantaged Pupil Projection April 2016' document.
