Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

The government allocates additional money to schools, Pupil Premium funding, for children from low income families or Looked after children. Funding is allocated to children who have been entitled to free school meals (FSM) over the last six years.

This is allocated to raise the attainment of these children and close the attainment gap between these pupils and others at our school as well as ensuring that all qualifying pupils benefit from the funding.

Total number of children on roll

Although numbers fluctuate during the year our January 24 CENSUS indicated that there were 201 children of statutory age of whom 105 were identified as eligible for pupil premium.

Therefore approximately 52% of our school population qualifies for Pupil Premium.

Our objectives for 2024

  • To ensure that our identified pupil premium children have closed the gap with national expectations by the time they leave Year 6.
  • To ensure that all identified children, including those not underachieving, achieve their end of year 6 target.          
  • To ensure that identified higher achieving disadvantaged learners reach higher outcomes by the time they leave us in Year 6.
