What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals and those looked after by the local authority.
To ensure that every child receives the support he/she needs:
- to develop as a confident, independent learner
- to develop academic and social skills,
- so that talents can be unlocked & nurtured (academic, creative, sporting etc)
- to access the curriculum fully
- to make good academic progress
- to achieve at least national expectations particularly in the Literacy and Numeracy.
Plans and Impact

What did Ofsted (June 2017) say about our use of Pupil Premium?
"Leaders and governors closely track the impact of the use of pupil premium funding to improve provision and outcomes for disadvantaged pupils. This money supports additional staffing in key year groups, counselling support and parenting programmes. This is contributing to improving progress in the majority of year groups, although differences in attainment remain."...."The governing body checks on the impact of pupil premium spending and of additional funding for pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. Governors have regular updates on pupils’ progress and meet middle leaders to gauge the impact of improvement strategies."
