Pupil Premium Funding
The Government believes that Pupil Premium funding, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
See our page on Free School Meals under school guide for details on how to apply.
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 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.

All schools are required to report on how the funding is spent.
For the school budget 2012/2013 the school received £15,150 and this has been used in the following ways~
- To provide short-term intervention programmes for underachieving pupils through additional Teaching Assistant support
- To provide one-to-one support programmes for some underachieving pupils through additional teaching support provided by Deputy Headteachers
- To provide enhanced pastoral support for pupils with emotional and behavioural difficulties
As well as monitoring the attainment and progress of all pupils staff and governors also monitor pupils who have received pupil premium funding to evaluate the impact of support that is undertaken.
Results for the last academic year 2011/2012 show that Pupil Premium children are in most cases making at least as much progress, or better, than others in their year group
