Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil premium funding is described by the Government as:


"Additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of  disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers" (


We will receive £1,345 per pupil for every child who:

  • has been recorded in January 2020 census who have been eligable for free school meals since May 2014 and including those eligiable in January 2020


We will recieve 2,345 for a child who:

  • Is a looked after child (LAC) defined by the Children Act 1989. 
  • Children who have ceased to be looked after becuase of adoption, special guardianship order or child arrangements order



What is our vision for Pupil Premium Spend?

The key objective for us when planning the pupil premium spend is to narrow any gaps there may be between pupil groups. The spend provides pupils with access to take the advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences for later life. In this way, it can powerfully address social disadvantage and build cultural capital.


 Our pupil premium spend plan holds the highest aspirations for all in line with our vision of Believe, Belong, Achieve. The spend encompasses emotional/social wellbeing alongside academic support.


Many of our children start with low attainment on entry; however we work tirelessly to identify this and ensure through carefully targeted use of the pupil premium funding we work to eliminate barriers to learning and ensure expected and exceeding progress for all.


  We are held to account as are our governing body for reporting our pupil premium spend and its impact.

September 2019- Governor review conducted with our Chair of Governors John Thomas.

PP review July 20

PP plan March 2019

The chair of governors has conducted a pupil premium review Jan 2019.

Our Pupil Premium review was conducted in April 2018. Please click on the document below to read the full report.



Key outcomes:


Children and pupils in all classes were fully engaged in lessons and enjoying their learning. Relationships between teachers and pupils were universally good.


Behaviour around the school was excellent 


The attitude of all pupils involved in this process (lunchtime family service) was outstanding and a testament to the school’s high expectations.


Pupils, including those supported by PP funding, demonstrate excellent attitudes to learning.


Generally, pupil premium pupils attend well but persistent absence remains too high.


Planning for how PP funding is used is clear and costs are broken down effectively
