Pupil Premium

Due to our small number of pupils, we do not publish the full Pupil Premium Strategy on line as it is possible to identify individual children.

What is the Pupil Premium?

 The Pupil Premium is a government initiative that targets additional funding to children from predominantly lower income households. Eligible children are those who have free school meals (FSM) now or in the last six years, or who have been fostered, adopted, or whose parents are in the armed forces. Children in these groups of need are statistically at risk of underachievement for many reasons.

 We use the money to support each Pupil Premium child in gaining the knowledge and skills they need to succeed and believe that they can succeed.

 Governors have agreed that whilst the Pupil Premium Grant must prioritise the achievement and wellbeing of Disadvantaged pupils, the benefits of resources and services should - wherever possible- extend to include other pupils, many of whom are also vulnerable. We use this money to provide extra staff support and resources to ensure there is accelerated learning to ensure there is little or no difference between the achievement of eligible children and those that are not.

 It should be noted that strategies facilitated by the introduction of the Pupil Premium are planned for an academic year (September to August), whereas the funding allocation is received for a financial year (April – March).

 The provision and impact through Pupil Premium is monitored through all levels of leadership and management:

  •          Governor meetings
  •          Senior Leadership Team meetings
  •          Pupil Progress Meetings
  •          Performance Management Meetings
  •          Continual Professional Development


  • We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of each pupil
  • We ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • We recognise that pupils eligible for Pupil Premium have a wide range of needs, including stretch and challenge for the most able, and we use the funding to improve outcomes for the full range of eligible pupils.
  • We also recognise that not all pupils who are vulnerable are registered or qualify for Pupil Premium funding. We reserve the right to allocate Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil, or group of pupils, who the school has identified as being at risk of underachievement.
  • We track the progress of pupil premium children rigorously to ensure there is a positive impact on learning outcomes.
