Pupil Premium

Each year the school receives money from the government to pay for all of the resources we need to run the school and educate the children. One aspect of this funding is our Pupil Premium Allocation. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support pupils who are eligible for free school meals and from service families. 

We have a statutory responsibility to inform you of what we spend our pupil premium on and the academic performance of pupils who are eligible for this funding. More information can be found below on how we spent our pupil premium, along with the outcomes for pupils who were eligible for this funding.
