Pupil Premium

The  pupil premium  is a government initiative that provides additional funding to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. The personal circumstances of some children can have a detrimental impact on their achievement, pupil premium is used to support disadvantaged pupils and try to ensure they have the same life chances as their peers. 

Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, such as special schools and pupil referral units. It is paid to schools according to the number of pupils who have :


  • been registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years
  • been in care for 6 months or longer
  • have a parent in the armed forces


Our school receives our pupil premium funding directly from the Local Authority based on the number of looked after children, service children and children eligible for free school meals.

Our use of the pupil premium last year was effective, our disadvantaged pupils did very well . Although attainment on entry to our school was low, by the time our pupils left us in 2018, their achievement was outstanding. By the end of each key stage the children made above average progress and their outcomes exceeded the National Average in all areas.  All our disadvantaged families attended parent and teacher consultation evenings and all our disadvantaged pupils took up the offer of attending our extra-curricular activities. Here are the results for our  Pupil Premium children and non pupil premium children....
