Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

 

What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Department for Education in 2011 as additional funding in order to address the underlying inequalities for potentially vulnerable groups and individuals. This includes those eligible for free school meals, those who are Looked After Children (LAC) and those from services families. The Government also decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2012-15 would be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last 6 years. Funding for service families in 2015 has been extended to those who have been in the services at any point over the last 4 years. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of pupils and to ensure successful continuity of education for children of service families.

 

This year 2019-2020 - 36.2% of our pupils are eligible for free school meals (FSM)/Ever 6 funding and 4.6% eligible for the Ever 4 Service children funding. The total additional funding for this year is £166,700.

 

In the year 2018-2019 - 30.4% of our pupils are eligible for free school meals (FSM)/Ever 6 funding and 5% eligible for the Ever 4 Service children funding. The total additional funding for this year is £156,420.

 

In the year 2016-2017 - 27.2% of our pupils were eligible for free school meals (FSM)/Ever 6 funding and 5.4% eligible for the Ever 4 Service children funding. The total additional funding for 2016-2017 is £151,800.

 

The School Aims and Values

Every school has a duty to ensure that every individual child is given the best possible chance of achieving their potential. As a result, we seek to meet the individual needs of every child, in order for them to develop fully. The ‘Pupil Premium’, along with all forms of school funding are carefully managed to ensure ‘best value’. This enables us to offer personalised support for children in a variety of ways.
