A place for learning, caring, sharing and growing together

Pupil Premium

Pupil premium is additional funding provided to schools for supporting more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all other children. There are three categories of children who qualify for pupil premium:


  • Children who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) or have been eligible for FSM in the past 6 years (Ever 6).
  • Children Looked After (CLA) in the care of the local authority or have ceased to be looked after because of Adoption or special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order.
  • Armed forces children


Our annual Pupil Premium strategy outlines how we have allocated these funds, the rationale for this and intended outcome/benefit of that planned allocation. The funding allocation for 2023-24 is £48,000 and is being used for:

  • Quality First Teaching with a focus on writing, challenging our more able learners and providing high quality CPD for teaching and support staff
  • Targeted individual and small group tutoring and interventions for example, phonics, English, Maths and social & emotional or mental health needs including supporting good attendance
  • Financial support for example, to access music tuition, trips, residentials and sports clubs


The progress and attainment of all pupils is tracked and monitored carefully to ensure they achieve their full potential.
