Our Vision for Pupil Premium

We have a clear vision for what all our pupils will achieve through high quality teaching, with an ethos that reinforces aspiration and attainment for all.  We realise the importance of getting the basics right, like attendance and behaviour, knowing that these impact a child's progress.  We have adopted a whole school approach to our use of the pupil premium that focuses on the full potential of every child. 

The Pupil Premium Grant is used to support disadvantaged pupils by removing any barriers to learning, build confidence, foster resilience and maintain high aspirations so all our children can be the best they can be.

What is Pupil Premium and who is eligible?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those Looked After by the Local Authority, adopted children or those who have been in care. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress, raise attainment and support the pupils in the participation of activities in the wider curriculum.

Children of Armed Services personnel also receive a Service Pupil Premium Grant.

As a school, we decide how the allocated Pupil Premium Grant should be spent. We assess each child and decide what additional provision should be made for these pupils. We are then required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being allocated and the impact of any additional support or provision.

If you think your child may be eligible for Free School Meals, please do not hesitate to contact the school office and we will help you with your application (01635 40318) or you can register online.  Please note that calls to the school office may be recorded. 

More information on the Pupil Premium Grant can be found on the Government website.

Additional funding may also be available if your child is in Nursery and belongs to one of the groups outlined above, this is called the Early Years Pupil Premium.
