Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Pupil Premium Strategy
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. It is allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority and/who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last 6 years (known as ever 6). It is also allocated to children of service personnel.
High quality first teaching is our primary aim.
Initially, funding will be spent on ensuring that all pupils achieve at least age related expectations, thus closing the gap between their attainment and that of their peers within school and nationally.
Pupil Premium Grant funding will be used to provide provision for:
- Targeted teaching and learning opportunities with specialist teachers within class and beyond.
- Group work for groups of identified pupils with an experienced teacher to close gaps in learning.
- 1 to 1 support where deemed most effective.
- Further opportunities to liaise with parents and carers.
- Acquiring effective materials aimed at raising standards in Reading, Writing, and Maths.
- Providing opportunities for More Able Pupils to achieve as well as their counterparts Nationally.
- Improve the attendance and behaviour for disadvantaged pupils
Please read the strategy and impact documents below to see how we have used this funding effectively to improve standards.

FREE SCHOOL MEALS AND THE PUPIL PREMIUM
HELP YOUR CHILD! HELP YOUR SCHOOL
Our school will receive extra funding
If your child qualifies for free school meals, the school will receive additional funding from the government to enable them to reach their full potential. Even if you decide not to take up the school meal, your child will still benefit from the additional funding the school receives which will then be used to enrich your child’s learning.
Does your child qualify for Free School Meals?
Is your child missing out? School meals will give your child a real appetite for learning and help them to achieve their full potential and to have better concentration in class. The delicious and healthy menus on offer contain HALAL / NON HALAL meat and vegetarian choices.
Your child may be entitled to FSMs if you receive one of the following:
- Income Support
- Income Support Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Employment & Support (income related)
- Support under sect. VI of the Immigration & Asylum Act
- Child Tax Credit (provided that you are not entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual income, assessed by HM Revenue and Customs, that does not exceed £16,190)
- Guarantee Element of State Pension Credit
- Universal Credit
Savings for your Family
If you are currently paying for your child’s school meals, you could make a saving of around £400 per year if your child qualifies for FSM.
