Pupil Premium

The pupil premium was introduced in April 2011 by the government and is allocated to schools to work with pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years (known as ‘Ever 6 FSM’). Schools also receive funding for children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months, and children of service personnel.

In 2015-16 there were 68 pupils entitled to pupil premium funding to support their learning and progress. The total received was £89,760.00.

The school’s focus was on the following areas

  • Supporting pupils with their emotional well-being
  • High quality teaching and learning
  • Accelerating pupil progress
  • Extending the more able pupils

The following table indicates how the funding was spent.
