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. To qualify for Pupil Premium funding, a child will have been entitled to receive free school meals at some point in the past six years.
A sum of up to £2,345 funding is provided for pupils who have been:
- identified in the January 2021 school census or the alternative provision census as having left local authority care as a result of:
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order)
- in local authority care for 1 day or more
- recorded as both eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years and as being looked after (or as having left local authority care)
How much Pupil Premium Funding does our school get?
In this current academic year (2022-2023) we expect to receive £79,875 in Recovery Premium and Pupil Premium Funding, £4,930 of which is Recovery Premium
The funding received by our School has been used in a variety of ways in order to 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.
Please see our Pupil Premium Strategy which details how our funding will be spent in the academic year 2022 - 23.
We received £58,575 in Pupil Premium in the Year 2021- 22.
