What is pupil premium funding?
Pupil premium is additional funding for schools that is to be used to raise the attainment of children in receipt of free school meals, have a parent in the forces or are have or have been in local authority care. Historically, across the country, these children achieve lower attainment scores when compared to those children who are not these groups.
Our School is committed to narrowing this attainment gap.

- removing individual barriers to learning such as health issues within the family and poor attendance rates
The impact of the funding was
- the provision of classes with 2 qualified teacher for our disadvantaged pupils has resulted in pupils making accelerated progress from their key stage one starting points.
- the removal of barriers to learning for vulnerable families and a reduction in the number of pupil premium children who have social care involvement. Impact of Pupil Premium Spending on Y6 2015-16
