Pupil Premium is funding we receive from the Government on an annual basis. It is additional to our main school funding and is used to address the underlying inequalities between children who are deemed to be at a disadvantage educationally compared to their more affluent peers.
The school receives Pupil Premium for the following children:
Children who are eligible for free school meals
Children who are in the after care system or who have been adopted from care
Children from Forces families (lower level)
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium in a way that they think will best support the raising of achievement for their children. The impact of the school's decisions is closely monitored by the governing body in relation to the progress the identified children make throughout the school year and year on year. In addition, Ofsted hold the school to account for the progress that Pupil Premium children make.
We review our strategy for spending of the Pupil Premium each year in the Spring, prior to setting the school's budget and allocating staff for the following September.
