Pupil Premium

The government has allocated a specific pupil premium grant to every school.  Our total grant for 2016-17 was  £13,040.  Pupil premium children are those who are or have been entitled to free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years, have parents in the armed forces or have been in local authority care for at least six months.  The funding is used to raise attainment, enhance learning experiences and help reduce the achievement gap between Pupil Premium children and their peers.  There are currently 14 pupil premium children at the school (2017-18).
