Use of Pupil Premium

"The school uses its pupil-premium funding to help disadvantaged pupils through a range of strategies.  These include additional one-to-one and small-group support in English and mathematics.  This is having a positive impact. At level 5+ the gap between pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and other pupils has closed in both English and mathematics.  At level 6+ the gap has narrowed significantly since the previous year.” Ofsted, 2013

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives.  It is used for the benefit of pupils who are known to be eligible for free school meals or who have been eligible in the last six years as well as children who have been looked after.

The Literacy and Numeracy Catch-up Premium is used to support Year 7 pupils who did not achieve at least Level 4 at the end of KS2.

The Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) received was £96,768 for the year 2015 - 2016.  The allocation for 2016 - 2017 is £149,906. At the January census there were 137 Pupil Premium pupils on roll in total.
