Pupil Premium Information


Since April 2012, schools have received funding to raise the educational attainment and improve the outcomes for disadvantaged children. This funding is known as ‘Pupil Premium’ and pupils who are eligible for this finding are identified in the following ways:

FSM (free school meals): Children entitled to free school meals

EVER 6: Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) in the last six years.

Ever 3: Pupils who are the child of a member of Service Personnel in the last 3 years.

CiC: Pupils who have been in care for a minimum of six months.

Adopted children: Those children adopted from care

From April 2015 the annual payment for ‘Ever 6 children is £1320 per pupil, for ‘Children in Care’ it is £1900, for adopted children it is £1900 and for ‘Service Personnel’ children it is £300.

Schools are free to spend Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held accountable for how we have used this funding to support achievement for pupils from low income…

The school has a Pupil Premium strategy statement for each academic year which can be accessed via the website. This statement sets out clearly who the received funding for Pupil Premium is being used and how the impact of the spending will be seen. The previous year’s statement is evaluated and the effectiveness of the support is reflected upon and influences the next academic year’s allocated funding. This document is also published on the website.
