Pupil Premium

Schools receive additional funding on the basis of the number of students they have who are eligible for Free School Meals or are a Child in Care. This additional funding is called the Pupil Premium and is aimed at socially disadvantaged pupils



We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all of our pupils

  • We make appropriate provision  for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are addressed
  • In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and not all socially disadvantaged pupils will be in receipt of free school meals
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated, therefore, to classes, groups or individuals identified as a priority. Limited funding and resources means that not all children receiving free school meals will be in receipt of pupil premium interventions at any one time
