Pupil Premium is “additional funding given to publically funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers,” by the Department of Education.
We aim to ensure that teaching and learning is organised to meet the needs of all children.
We seek to ensure that appropriate provision is made for children who belong to vulnerable groups, which includes assessing and addressing the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils.
We recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged and not all children who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals. We will use Pupil Premium funding to support any child we have identified as in need of support and intervention to improve progress.
Pupil Premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis to identify priority classes, groups or individuals.
Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
