Pupil Premium

'Similarly, the pupil premium is used to provide support for disadvantaged pupils and is meeting their particular needs increasingly well'.

Ofsted 2017

The pupil premium is a fund designed to reduce inequality between groups of pupils. This funding is generated by the number of children who are in receipt of free school meals (FSM), are looked after children (LAC) or are children with military parents.

Pupil Premium Strategy for 2018/2019

Whilst recognising that this much appreciated additional government funding was generated by a particular group of children, our ethos of fairness to all within our community meant that the funding was used for the benefit of the whole school to introduce inclusion programmes and maintain additional staffing which may have been at risk due to budget constraints. This decision is reflected within the mission of the school where it states “…Everyone is given the opportunity to achieve their full potential and share in each others successes…”
