Schools receive additional funding to raise the attainment gap of disadvantaged children of all abilities and to close the gap between them and their peers. This additional funding is called the Pupil Premium.
What funding is available?
- Schools receive £1345 additional funding for any pupil who has been eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
- Schools also receive an additional £300 for any children from Services families.
- An additional £1900 is also given to schools for any pupil who has been adopted, or is in local authority care.
How is this funding spent?
Each year, schools must produce a ‘Pupil Premium Strategy’ that outlines how this additional funding will be spent and the impact previous spending has had.
For the academic year 2018/2019, the school received £32,030 in additional funding (including Pupil Premium, Service Children Premium and LAC). The following strategy indicates how this money will be spent and the impact that is expected from it. The version shown is the interim review of the strategy (updated July 2019): Pupil Premium Strategy 2018-2019 – interim evaluation July 2019
