Pupil Premium Report
The Pupil Premium is a sum of money that is allocated to schools to ensure that all children have an equal chance to succeed. The Pupil Premium funding is determined by:
- The number of children who are registered for Free School Meals
- The number of children who are classed as “looked after children”
- The number of children from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
The above children must be in reception, year 1 or year 2. This means that children in nursery do not qualify.
Historically the school has received no pupil premium funding.
This year our allocation is £1,300.
How we spend the money…
The money we receive is strictly ring-fenced so it only spent on the children who qualify for it. This is how we are spending the money this year:
This year the school's pupil premium has been committed to provide educational support and intervention through the employment of extra teaching assistant hours. In addition it has been used to provide out of school activities which pupils would not otherwise have been able to access.
In order for the school to access pupil premium funding, eligible parents must apply to the local authority for free school meals. This application is necessary even though all infant meals are provided free of charge at present.
