Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement and ensure that they achieve as well as their peers. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel.  In 2012, funding was extended to include pupils who have been eligible for free school meals within the past 6 years.

Nationally, the statistics show that students who are in receipt of FSM do less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this money is to try to close that attainment gap.


The school is allocated a sum of money called pupil premium for pupils receiving free school meals, pupils who are ‘looked after’ or have received free school meals in the past but may no longer be entitled. 

This year 16.1 % of pupils are eligible for pupil premium.

This year £95,004 has been allocated for pupil premium.
