The Pupil Premium is additional government funding designed to help disadvantaged children and young people do well at school.
The funding is allocated to school for children who have registered for Free School Meals (FSM) in the last six years (termed Ever 6), are Looked After Children (LAC), or have a parent who is in the Armed Forces.
The money is used to support our primary pupils and secondary students and ensure that there are no barriers to their achievement at school. A Pupil Premium Educational Voucher of £125 is available directly to families to support their child’s progress in school during this academic year. It can be spent on:
- Learning resources (books, revision guides etc.);
- Educational trips/visits arranged by the school (all visit/trip letters will contain pupil premium information);
- In some circumstances it can be used for travel to/from alternative educational provision or for parents to attend Parents’ Evenings;
- Uniform replacement if this is an issue.
(N.B. This money does not roll over into the next academic year due to financial regulations and restrictions).
If your child is eligible and you would like to find out more about how we use the pupil premium, please contact the school.
Details of the impact our intervention has had on the GCSE and KS2 results of Pupil Premium students and pupils over the last three years may be downloaded here. These are reviewed annually at the end of each academic year.
