Pupil Premium Funding

Number of Pupils and Pupil Premium Funding Received
Total Number of pupils on roll 628
Total number of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium Funding 34 (5%)
Total amount of Pupil Premium Funding received £41,320

The allocations are based on pupils on roll in September and free school meal history.


The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources on those pupils deemed to be from a disadvantaged background.  Pupil Premium money is provided for those pupils who have been eligible for free school meals at any point over the past 6 years or those children who are or have been looked after.

Pupil Premium now has a value of £1,320 per pupil eligible for free school meals and £1,900 for children who have been adopted from care. There is also a smaller provision of £300 made for those pupils who have a parent in the armed services.

The government have not dictated how the Pupil Premium money should be spent, but what is clear is that the money should be used to promote strategies which narrow the attainment gap between those children eligible for Pupil Premium funding and those who are not eligible.
