Pupil Premium Funding

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.

Schools receive funding for each child registered as eligible for free school meals and looked after children.

On our website are details of our pupil premium allocation last year and this year.  In addition, you will find information on how the money was spent last year and its impact on our children, plus information on how we plan to spend the funding this year.

It is important that our parents and carers who may have a child(ren) at our school entitled to free school meals register this information with us.  With the introduction of the Universal Infant Free School Meal system to all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 parents may feel it is not necessary to apply for free school meals.  However, this information is crucial to ensure our school receives the correct funding to support our children’s learning.  To help us do this, below is a simple form to download, print, complete and return to school – the form is also available on request from the School Office.  If you need any support in completing the form, or want to discuss the form then please don’t hesitate to ask our office team who would be happy to help.

As you will be able to see from our other web pages, the pupil premium is a crucial part of ensuring our children achieve their best both academically and socially.  Please help us ensure our funding for your child is correct.

Many thanks
