Website introduction

All schools receive Government money to reduce the gap in educational attainment due to social disadvantage.  This is called Pupil Premium money.  You will find a statement attached with details of how this money has been spent and what the impact has been on closing the achievement gap.



The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between the children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that the funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.


The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.  As a group children who have been eligible for FSM at any point, have consistently lower educational attainment than those who have never been eligible.


The Government has decided that eligibility for the Pupil Premium in 2012-2013 will be extended to pupils who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years

Schools have been asked to report on academic years. Whilst the Pupil Premium is allocated during the financial year, the school plans over an academic year.  The grant received in any academic year

This money has been used in a number of different ways to support the learning of the pupils concerned.


Academic year 2015/16

Funding for 2015/16 is £269,280.


Thus the grant received for the academic year 2015-16 was 5/12ths (April 15– August 15) of £269,280= £112,200 and 7/12ths (September 15 – March 16) of £269,200  = £157,080. This gives a total figure of £269,280.


The majority of the Pupil Premium money has been used to:

improve staffing ratios thus reducing adult pupil ratios, providing more effective targeted support and a curriculum that is more personalised to the needs of the individual learner
