Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is additional government money given to schools in England to help disadvantaged young people do well at school and narrow the gap, both in school and nationally, between them and their peers.

Who is eligible for PP?

The funding is allocated to schools for students up to Year 11 who have registered for free school meals in the last six years, and young people who are in care or have parents in the Armed Forces. 

How is it spent?

Schools are free to choose how to spend their Pupil Premium money. This may include funding extra classroom support, maths and literacy catch-up sessions, educational trips, music lessons or a breakfast club, speech and language or family therapy, or learning resources.

We use our pupil premium to fund a range of opportunities to help our pupils reach their potential.
