Pupil Premium

16 Sep 2013


The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils.  All students identified as being in the Pupil Premium cohort will benefit from additional academic support and encouragement to ensure that they have a positive and successful learning experience. We aim to close any gap in attainment and achievement between them and their non-Pupil Premium peers. This money is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM).

You can read more about Pupil Premium by clicking here.

If your child does not have Free School Meals but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish for them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to support your child.

For more information on Free School Meals please click here.

In 2012/13 the school received £20,559 in pupil premium funding. Please read the report below to see how this money was spent and the impact it has had on raising achievement for children who are eligible for pupil premium funding.

In 2013/14 the school has been allocated £29,900 in pupil premium funding. This is being used to provide additional support through Reading Recovery groups, Numicon, Booster groups, additional teacher input to provide targeted group work in Maths and English as well as Interventions provided by  Teaching Assistants who provide small group tuition. Social and Emotional support programmes, with mentoring and Play Therapy will be provided, as well as funding for educational visits to raise the level of writing attainment across the school.  We also run an Easter and Summer school programme for identified pupils to raise attainment.

We are also using the pupil premium to raise the standard in English and Maths across the whole school.
