Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a payment from the Government which is in addition to the school budget.  The money is allocated to school to support children who are from low-income families who
• are known to be eligible for Free School Meals;
• have been looked after (in the care of the Local Authority) continuously for more than six months
• have parents who are currently employed by the Armed Forces.
Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium funding as they consider appropriate to most benefit the needs of their pupils.  From September 2012 all schools are required to publish on the school website how their Pupil Premium funding has been spent and what impact this has had on pupil progress and achievement.
This year, our Pupil Premium is £128,220.  This money will be used to provide:
  • Booster Class Teachers
  • Booster TAs
  • Speech and Language Support
  • Challenger Troop
  • FLO
  • Attendance and Welfare Officer
  • Curriculum Enrichment - school trips, visiting groups, theatre companies etc.
