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