Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is paid by means of a specific grant based upon school census figures for pupils registered for Free School Meals in the past 6 years. In addition a grant is also received for looked after children and for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The pupil premium is additional to the main school funding and it will be used by the school to address any underlying inequalities or underachievement for the children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches those pupils who need it most.

Objectives for Pupil Premium
