Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium


General Statement

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. The funding is provided in addition to the main school funding and is intended to help disadvantaged pupils to ‘close the gap’ and to raise attainment and improve progress.  Children who are eligible include:


  • Pupils who have been registered for Free School Meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years
  • Pupils who are Looked After Children.
  • Pupils who have been children of armed services personnel at any point in the last four years.
  • Children who have been adopted from Local Authority Care.


Not all of our pupils are eligible for FSM and so the school does, at times, use the funding to support a wider range of pupils who have been identified as disadvantaged in some way, ie group activities where some, but not all pupils, are eligible for Pupil Premium.

Our Pupil Premium Governor is Mrs Libby Turner



For the period of 2016-2017, the total Pupil Premium Funding was £49,159 and our total expenditure was £47,795


The following Key Objectives were aimed through the 16-17 Pupil Premium Planning Statement:


  • To provide a focus on pupils reading to impact on progress across the curriculum as well as in English
  • To ensure all pupils are prepared for post 16 provision with appropriate placement
  • To ensure all pupils are ready to learn after long journeys to school
  • Improve outcomes through addressing the need to dedicated welfare provision for PD/PP pupils (100% of PD pupils are PP)
