What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children that are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils that are (or have been) entitled to Free School Meals; those looked after by the Local Authority and children of armed service personnel. Pupil premium funding is not ring-fenced. It is for the school to determine how best to use the funding to compensate for disadvantage and to demonstrate that the specific needs of eligible pupils have been addressed. All schools are required to publish information to parents about Pupil Premium funding, its allocation to support learning and its impact.

Our Principles

We identify vulnerable groups, including the needs of those pupils deemed socially disadvantaged, through appropriate assessment, tracking and parent involvement

We ensure appropriate provision is in place to address any attainment gaps that may exist for some vulnerable groups, whilst recognising that not all pupils who receive Pupil Premium Funding will be socially disadvantaged

Pupil Premium Funding will be allocated through careful analysis of relevant data

We acknowledge that before we accelerate progress there are other barriers that we need to address, including attendance, social and emotional factors and early intervention family support

Our use of Pupil Premium funding is aimed at accelerating pupil progress and ensuring children achieve at least age-related expectations.


Ever 6 FSM - The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 will include pupils recorded in the January 2016 school census who are known to have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in any of the previous 6 years (ie since summer 2009), as well as those first known to be eligible at January 2016.

Children adopted from care or who have left care - The pupil premium for 2016 to 2017 will include pupils recorded in the January 2016 school census and alternative provision census who were looked after by an English or Welsh local authority immediately before being adopted, or who left local authority care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order). These are collectively referred to as post-LAC in these conditions of grant.

Ever 5 service child - For the purposes of these grant conditions, ever 5 service child means a pupil recorded in the January 2016 school census who was eligible for the service child premium in any of the previous 4 years (ie since the January 2012 school census) as well as those recorded as a service child for the first time on the January 2016 school census. Where national curriculum year groups do not apply to a pupil, the pupil will attract PPG if aged 4 to 15 as recorded in the January 2016 school census.

If you feel that your child might be eligible for this school funding, please come in and see the headteacher or the office staff.
