Pupil Premium is an additional grant given to schools to help improve the attainment of disadvantaged children. We encourage all parents who receive qualifying benefits to apply, in confidence, for the grant. This extra funding helps the school to make a real difference to those children. We use the grant in a number of ways to help raise attainment and to provide enriching experiences. For every child that qualifies, the school receives £1,320.
You can read about how we have spent the Pupil Premium Grant in previous years below but expenditure includes the use of interventions such as Numicon, Read Write Inc., the provision of Homework Books, free school trips, free Breakfasts and activities days for all children such as Forensic Science Days, Dinosaur Days and Circus Workshops.

We review our strategy and allocation once data is validated in September 2018. For the current academic year, we will next review the plan in July 2018 to ensure that our strategy has made a positive impact.
It is a requirement that all Schools report on their pupil premium allocation, use and impact on attainment at the end of the financial year. We do this on a yearly basis and display this information here. The reports are available below:
Premium Children receive many benefits so please don’t forget to register.
The new law from 1st April 2018 means that many parents may now be eligible for Pupil Premium.
