Pupil Premium


The Government provides academies and schools with additional funding to support children who are at greater risk of under-achievement.  This funding helps to reduce inequalities and gaps in attainment between those students who are on free school meals (FSM) and their peers. This funding is called the Pupil Premium. Early Years Pupil Premium for 3 and 4 year olds is also available.



Children eligible for Pupil Premium include:

•Children of statutory school age from low income families who are known, or have previously been known, to be eligible for free school meals (FSM)

•Children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months

•Children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces


Every academy and school can select how they choose to use their Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for students. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate pupil progress and raise attainment by improving the breadth of experiences for a specific group. As we view all pupils as individual learners the scope of use will vary to best fit the pupils' needs as they arise.



•We ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all pupils

•We ensure that children belonging to vulnerable groups, including those from socially disadvantaged backgrounds, are adequately assessed and provision is made to meet their needs

•In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free schools meals will be socially disadvantaged

•We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged will be in receipt of free school meals. We therefore reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any groups of pupils that the school deems to be socially disadvantaged

Early Years pupil premium


This is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.

Sport Premium Funding


Sport Premium Funding was introduced, by the Government, in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England.  Schools can choose how they use the funding to best improve their sports provision, sport participation and attainment. Details of how we plan to allocate the grant for this academic year can be viewed by downloading the document on the left-hand side of the page.
