Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Strategy 2023-2024

The 'Pupil Premium' Grant was introduced by the government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in raising the attainment of children who receive free school meals, children in local authority care (Pupil Premium Plus), children who have been adopted (Pupil Premium Plus) or children from families who are serving in our forces. This eligibility also extends to children who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years (Ever-6 pupils).

These groups of children have been identified nationally as achieving at a lower level than children from less disadvantaged backgrounds, therefore the intention of Pupil Premium funding is to enable schools to offer enhanced provision and 'bridge the gap' between our most disadvantaged children and their non-disadvantaged peers.

In the academic year 2023-2024, we have 8 children who qualify as 'Pupil Premium' in school, which equates to £11,640 of funding.
In the academic year 2023-2024, we have 4 children who qualify as 'Pupil Premium Plus' in school, which equates to £10,120 of funding.
in the academic year 2023-2024, we have 5 children who receive service premium, which equates to £1,675 of funding.
This equates to £23,435 of funding in total.
Each academic year, our school publishes a 'Pupil Premium' strategy document which details the amount of funding which we receive, as well as how we intend to spend the premium and our rationale for why we are choosing to spend it in this way, backed up with evidence, in order to overcome the barriers to educational achievement that our eligible pupils face.
