The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional government funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to underachievement.
Funding is received for each eligible pupil each year, this is used by our school in a variety of ways in order to provide support, experiences and opportunities which improve attainment and progress and to help overcome barriers to learning.
We know that children learn best when they are happy, secure, confident, valued, and fully included in school life. Our use of pupil premium funding takes account of these wider considerations. We believe that raising standards is best achieved by ensuring that children have reasonable access to all that our school has to offer.
In this current academic year (2023-2024) we expect to receive £96,935.10 in Recovery Premium and Pupil Premium Funding, £7,685 of which is Recovery Premium
Please see our Pupil Premium Strategy which details how our funding will be spent in the academic year 2023 - 24.
We received £74,945 in Pupil Premium in the Year 2022- 23.
Pupil Premium Strategy and Impact Statement:
Our Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed annually at the end of each academic year (July 2023). Please see the Review of expenditure section of the Pupil Premium Strategy report for the 2022-23 Impact Statement.
