Please use the following links to download the most recent Pupil Premium information.
Pupil Premium is money given to schools to raise the attainment of children who:
- are currently entitled to free school meals
- have been entitled to free school meals in the past 6 years
- who are looked after
- live in a serving forces family
Since April 2014, the pupil premium funding has been:
- £1,300 per pupil of primary-school age
- £300 per pupil of serving forces families either currently serving or have served within the past 4 years
- £1,900 per pupil for looked-after children or children under a Special Guardianship or Residence Order
The school has accountability for the pupil premium as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need. OFSTED inspections report on how schools’ use of the funding affects the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. They also hold schools to account through performance tables, which include data on:
- the attainment of the pupils who attract the funding
- the progress made by these pupils
- the gap in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and their peers
