Pupil premium funding is allocated to schools for pupils who are:
- eligible for free school meals at any time in the last 6 years
- children in care
- children of armed service personnel
The aim of the Pupil Premium is to close the overall gap in achievement, that is seen in these pupil groups nationally. Schools have freedom to spend this money in any way they choose to raise the attainment and meet the emotional and social needs of these pupils. There is a requirement for schools to publish online information about how this sum of money was spent and how it impacted on attainment during the last academic year, and how the money will be spent over the current academic year.
Please read the information below for details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
