Pupil Premium

2020/2021 Pupil Premium Spending Plan


The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children from Services families.  This also includes any pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years.

Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school.

If you believe that you are eligible for PP funding, please compklete and return the form available here, to the school office.

Early Years Pupil Premium

From April 2015, nurseries, schools, childminders, academies and any setting registered to provide the 3 & 4 year old free entitlement will be able to claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) to support children’s development, learning and care. Registering to receive Early Years Pupil Premium could provide up to an extra £300 a year for your child’s early years setting to fund valuable support such as extra training or resources to help raise the quality of your child’s early education. The Early Years Pupil Premium is paid directly to your childcare provider as part of their normal funding claim. It is not paid to parents or seen as a monetary amount on invoices.
