Pupil Premium Funding

What is pupil premium funding?

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Currenlty, the amount awarded is £1320 for any primary pupil entitled to free school meals, or who has been entitled to FSM during the past six years.


How well are our pupil premium pupils doing?

In July 2018, 100% of our disadvantaged pupils made expected levels of progress at the end of year 6 in reading, writing and maths. 50% atained the higher score in Reading.

In July 2017, our pupil premium pupil in year 6 did not reach age expectation.

In July 2016, both our pupil premium pupils in year 6 were working at an age expected level in grammar, spelling and punctuation but not in writing, maths or reading.
