Background

Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals, those whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces and those children who have been continuously looked after for more than six months.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However we are accountable for how we have used this additional funding. For the financial year 2016-17 schools were allocated this additional funding to be used to support interventions and provision already in place at their schools and to provide additional support where a need was apparent.

Our School

We received £7800 Pupil Premium Funding for the year 2016-2017. Other funding will be allocated from our Delegated Budget to this amount to ensure we support all of our most disadvantaged pupils.
