Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium Grant was first introduced in 2011 and is provided to schools with the aim of raising the attainment of disadvantaged students, of all abilities, to achieve their potential.

The Pupil Premium is used to support students who are recorded on our school census and who are known to be:

  • eligible for free school meals, or have been eligible in the past six years
  • adopted from care or have left care
  • looked after by the Local Authority

If you think that your child might be eligible for free school meals, please visit this page on our website: Free school meals information

Although not based on disadvantage, the Service Pupil Premium has been combined into the pupil premium payments to make it easier for schools to manage their spending. This funding is to help with pastoral support. Students who attract the Service Pupil premium have a parent who:

  • is serving in HM Forces
  • has retired on a pension from the Ministry of Defence

Each year schools are required to publish a Pupil Premium Strategy Statement detailing how they have allocated their Pupil Premium Fund and the impact of the fund in the previous year. This year the Pupil Premium Statement also includes details of the Recovery Premium, an additional fund provided as part of a package to support educational recovery after the disruption during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The below documents give details of our provision:
