What is Pupil Premium?
The school is allocated additional funds called Pupil Premium, which are used to support the progress of groups of children who, for a number of reasons, may find their learning more difficult. Specifically, it is allocated for those children receiving free school meals, children from service families and children who have been adopted or who are in local authority care.
Who is eligible for Pupil Premium?
Please advise the school if:
- Your child is registered for free school meals or has been registered for free school meals in the last 6 years.
- Your child is a Looked after Child, who have been looked after for 1 day or more.
- Your child was adopted from care on or after 30 December 2005, or left care under a special guardianship order or a residence order.
- Either parent is in the services or who has been so in the last 6 years.
How is Pupil Premium spent?
Support may be provided in the form of one to one tuition from a trained primary teacher; one to one or small group support from a learning support assistant; specially designed support materials; pastoral support from our specialist trained support assistants and close monitoring of progress. Subsidies are also be available for clubs, trips, visits and residential visits.

The Pupil Premium Strategy was reviewed in April 2019 as part of a mid-year review.
