The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011, and paid to schools by means of a specific grant based on pupils registered for Free School Meals (FSM), children that are looked after (LAC) and those children whose parents are serving in the Armed Forces. The Pupil Premium is additional to main school funding and it will be used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most. The school receives funding at the start of the financial year (April) in order to plan and consider the most effective spending for the start of the academic year in September.
The Head teacher and the Senior Management Team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies that have been put in place for Pupil Premium and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.
In school there are currently 21 pupils (FSM, LAC, Forces children) and 9 additional 'Ever6' students who are entitled to benefit from the additional funding. In the current financial year from April 2017-2018 the school received £59,260 in additional funds.
Our Pupil Premium Strategy Statement outlines both our planned expenditure for 2017/18, based on key indicators, as well as a review of our 2016/17 plans with impact data.
