The school receives additional funding by way of a Pupil Premium and Pupil Premium Plus. It was introduced in April 2011. The funding is for children from low-income families who are, or have been for the last six years, eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
The Department for Education and Ofsted have given the schools freedom to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they are responsible for how they use the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families and the other target groups that the school may have.
Schools are required to publish online information about how they have used the premium. For our strategy report on pupil premium for 2018/2019 (including Oct 2018 update notes) please click here.
