Pupil Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.



The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used.  


Financial year 2019 to 2020


In the 2019 to 2020 financial year, schools will receive the following funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years:


  • £1,320 for pupils in Reception year to Year 6


Schools will also receive £2,300 for each pupil identified in the spring school census as having left local-authority care because of 1 of the following:


  • adoption
  • a special guardianship order
  • a child arrangements order
  • a residence order


If a pupil has been registered as eligible for free school meals and has also left local-authority care for any of the reasons above, they will attract the £1,900 rate.


In 2019/20 our Pupil Premium funding allocation is £14,480 


The main barriers to educational achievement for our Pupil Premium children are social and economic factors. Children in receipt of Pupil Premium funding are monitored closely every term through assessment, tracking and pupil progress meetings. We use the additional funding to:


• Maintain our TA hours so that each class in school has a full time TA and tailored interventions can be provided


Our use of Pupil Premium funding is a method for closing the gap between the attainment and progress of identified pupils and their peers.
