Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium Grant Allocation and Impact Statement

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium was introduced in 2011. It is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the provision of disadvantaged children.

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than other children.  The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow this gap.

Schools can be issued Pupil Premium for children who have:

  • qualified for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
  • been looked after under local authority care for more than one day.

How is it spent?

Schools can choose  how to spend their pupil premium money, as they are best placed to identify what would be the most benefit to the children who are eligible.  However, they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.

Please see the links below for how we have or intend to spend this funding.
