The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
- Pupil Premium is extra funding which has two separate aims set by the Government:
- to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities to reach their potential
- to support children and young people with parents in the regular armed force
- The government has identified these groups of children as; children entitled to free school meals (FSM), those eligible for a free school meal at any point in the last six years of their school life (Ever6), children who are currently looked after by the Local Authority (LAC), children who have previously been looked after by the Local Authority (PLAC) and children from service families
- Schools have been given the freedom to spend the additional funding known as 'Pupil Premium' in a way that they think will best support with raising the attainment and accelerating rates of progress of these most vulnerable pupils.
In the current academic year, 2020-21, Pupil Premium funding was set at £2,345 per pupil eligible under LAC or PLAC criteria, £1,345 per pupil eligible under FSM and Ever6 and £310 per pupil eligible under Service Premium. In this academic year our total allocation of funding is £9,380.

Our Governor Resources Committee review the impact of our Pupil Premium Plan each term and we produce our final impact statement at the end of the academic year.
