Pupil Premium is an additional sum of funding granted to school, with the aim of narrowing the gap in educational attainment between those eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers. Parents - please contact the school office if you believe you may be eligible for Free School Meals – it can help your weekly finances as well as the school's ability to fund additional provision for your child.
The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) per pupil for 2020 to 2021 is as follows:
|Disadvantaged Pupils||Pupil Premium per pupil|
|Pupils in year groups Reception to Year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals||£1,345|
|Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority||£2,345|
|Pupil Premium received for the financial year April 20 to March 21||£108,696|
The Government believes that mainstream schools are best positioned to themselves decide how this money should be allocated. Schools are therefore free to decide on the strategies and interventions which can improve the progress and attainment of pupils from these more disadvantaged backgrounds.
Some additional funding is available to early years settings to improve the quality of education for eligible 3 and 4 year olds. This is for children accessing the universal early education 15 hour entitlement.
