What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium is allocated to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll that are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years, are looked after children or have parents serving in the armed forces. The funding allocation per pupil changes each year.
Our school has the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way we think will best address inequalities, tackle disadvantage and support the raising of attainment for our pupils.
A breakdown on how the Pupil Premium was spent last year including the impact of expenditure and our new provision plan for 2018 can be found in the document links on the right of this page.
