The Pupil Premium is an element of school funding aimed at narrowing the gap in attainment between certain potentially
disadvantaged groups of pupils (eligible for Free School Meals, Looked After Children and those whose parents are in the armed forces) and other pupils.
Pupil premium is additional funding allocated to all schools in England to support disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. This budget includes pupils who are currently entitled to free school meals, have been entitled to free schools meals in the past six years (FSM ‘Ever 6’), children that are cared for or adopted from care and children whose parents are in the armed forces.
In 2019/2020 our school budget included a Pupil Premium allocation of £11,880.
Each year we produce a Pupil Premium Report where we outline how the funding has been allocated and measure the impact that the Pupil Premium funding has had on the progress and attainment of pupils in receipt of it. We review the report termly and update it annually.
