Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to help improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. The Pupil Premium grant allocates funding to schools on the basis of the number of their pupils deemed to come from disadvantaged backgrounds and asks schools to demonstrate how the money is helping to close the gap between them and their peers. Pupils who are eligible for Free School Meals or have been eligible for Free School Meals during the previous six years (known as Ever 6), receive Pupil Premium funding, as are children whose Parents/Carers are in the services. Children who have been Looked After for one day or more, were adopted from care, have a special guardianship order or a residence order receive Pupil Premium Plus funding.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy outlines how we are using the Pupil Premium grant to provide high quality teaching for all (1), targeted support (2) and other approaches (3) to narrow the attainment gap. As a school, we believe that all children, irrespective of background, should feel a sense of belonging and that a high-quality curriculum and inclusive teaching makes learning accessible for all.  This is underpinned by nurturing, authentic relationships with children and families and a culture of enabling every child to be the best they can be, regardless of background, challenge or need.

Mrs. Patrick is our Pupil Premium Lead and Miss. Ritchie is our Designated Teacher for Looked After (LAC) and Previously Looked After Children (PLAC).
