What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium grant funding is awarded to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children from lower income families. Funding is intended to help disadvantaged children overcome any barriers to learning that they may face. Such barriers may include poor language skills, behaviour management, low attendance and lack of confidence. As an Academy, we must direct the funding to reach the pupils who need it most and try work to reduce the attainment gap between eligible pupils and their peers.
Is your child eligible?
Schools are given a pupil premium for:
- Children who have qualified for free school meals at any point in the last six years. The school receives £1,345 for each of these children.
- Children who have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day. These children are awarded a premium of £2,345.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit, within the Conditions of Grant, but are required to publish online information about how we have used the Premium. Please see our report(s) by following the link(s) below:
