Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
Primary schools are given a pupil premium for:
- Children in Reception to Year 6 who are currently entitled to free school meals based on their family income: £1345 per pupil, per school year
- Children in Reception to Year 6 who were previously entitled to benefits-based free school meals, even if they're no longer eligible: £1345 per pupil, per school year, for six years after they stopped qualifying for free school meals
- Children previously in care who have been adopted, or who have a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order: £2345 per pupil, per school year
- Children recorded as being from service families: £310 per pupil, per school year
As a school, we wholeheartedly support the need to help all pupils succeed ensuring where possible that their financial circumstances do not hinder their progress, attainment and individual potential. Life is about chance and opportunity we want to ensure that every child has the same opportunities and life chances.
The Pupil Premium Grant gives the school the ability to help pupils where they need it most and we are increasingly striving to become more and more creative in how we meet the needs of our learners.
At the core of all we do, is our drive to ensure pupils are Key Stage 3 ready so we are very keen to diminish any gaps between them and their non Pupil Premium peers in relation to their academic success to give them the best start to help them reach their individual potential.
Please help us to help your child/ren - if you think your child could be eligible, don’t delay - contact the admin team, Head teacher Mrs Robins or Deputy Headteacher Miss Jelley.
