Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant Expenditure 


Money allocated by the Government to improve pupil attainment and help overcome learning barriers.


Pupil Premium Explained

Pupil Premium funding is additional money provided to schools based on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) each year. This money is allocated to reduce disadvantage, improve pupil attainment and to help overcome any barriers to learning that disadvantaged children may experience. Pupil Premium Funding is awarded for any child who has been in receipt of FSM at any point in the last 6 years (Ever 6).


In making provision for disadvantaged children, we recognise that not all children who receive FSM will be disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all children, who are in some way disadvantaged, are registered or qualify for free school meals. The school therefore allocates the Pupil Premium Funding to support any child or group of children we have identified as being disadvantaged. Schools are not obliged to allocate money to individuals but may choose to direct funding to where it will have a positive impact on relevant disadvantaged pupils. For some pupils this may also include help with uniforms or another relevant educational need.


If you think you may be eligible for free school meals, even of you do not wish your child to take them up, please do contact us and apply, as this can unlock vital additional funding for disadvantaged children.  Similarly, if you are in need of support please do contact us so that we can signpost you for further support.



We received £130,630 during the 2019/20 academic year.
