Pupil Premium

School  received a Pupil Premium award from the Government in 2015.  This means we were recognised as a school that has consistently since 2011 obtained outstanding results for our Pupil Premium children.  We were very pleased that our efforts were recognised.

Pupil Premium 


Pupil Premium is additional funding to the main school budget and is to be used to support disadvantaged pupils to ensure the national achievement gap between them and their peers closes.

Pupil Premium is allocated to any pupil currently on Free School Meals (FSM) or having been in receipt of FSM in the past 6 years.

It is for individual schools to decide how to best use the funding, since they are best placed to know what provision needs to be in place to support vulnerable pupils.  However, schools are accountable for how they spend the money linked to the attainment and progress of Free School Meal children.
