Pupil Premium


Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low income families who are eligible for free school meals, children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces. Its purpose is to address inequality, ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage and support emotional and social wellbeing reaches the pupils who need it most. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium allocation as they see fit and are held accountable for how they have used the funds.

  • To provide 2x 0.625 Teachers. One teacher per phase to offer reduced class size and tailored support to individuals.
  • To enable eligible children to receive extra support and intervention by a teaching assistant out of core lessons
  • To supported the cost of extra curricular activities for targeted children
  • To provide targeted 1-1 teaching for children who needed extra intervention from a 1-1 teacher


The respective children’s progress and attainment is tracked and monitored carefully by a member of the school’s leadership team to ensure that children have the opportunities to achieve their full potential.
