Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it is used by our school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who most need it.

Our Principles

  • To ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs for all our pupils.
  • To ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes assessing and addressing the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils and of children with high mobility.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority needs.  Allocation of funding and resources will vary according to those needs.

2017-2018 Pupil Premium funding was calculated on the basis of 10 “Ever 6” Free School Meal pupils in school and the total amount received was £15,100.
