Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Funding


In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).  It has been expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years and we get extra again for our Forces families.


This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially. The impact of our pupil premium spend is to ‘close’ and ‘eradicate’ the gap for FSM children, we have a named Governor who has responsibility for ensuring we reach this aim: Mr Allen supported by the Chair of Governors, Mr Peter Rooney and the Full Governing Body. 


In 2017-18 the school will receive £204,185 Pupil Premium Funding. (This increase is due to the Government allocating more money to each pupil eligible for Pupil Premium funding.) We assessed ‘What Works Well’ from previous years and with studying the Department for Education’s research (along with The Sutton Trust’s research of What Works Well nationwide) we have altered how we use the Pupil Premium as our end of year data last year showed the spend did not have the impact we expected.

The Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed on a termly basis by the SLT.  The next review is due December 2018.  The Full Governing Body review Pupil Premium at their termly meetings.  They agree the strategy in the Autumn Term meeting and review the impact in the Summer Term meeting.  


If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child.
