Pupil Premium funding:
Introduced in 2011, pupil premium funding is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children. Research has shown that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers. Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, may have less family support, and lack confidence and opportunities for learning. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates. The sum of money is based on the number of pupil’s in the school each year who are, or have been, entitled to Free School Meals.
If you are a parent / carer and your child has an entitlement to free school meals (based on a low income), please do let our administrator know.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
