Pupil Premium

The Government introduced new funding arrangements for schools in 2011. A key change was the introduction of a grant called the Pupil Premium, which is linked to the number of pupils eligible to receive Free School Meals, those who are Looked After and children whose parents serve in the Armed Forces. This information provides an indicator of the levels of need within a school. Schools are required to publish information regarding how they choose to spend this allocation and how they expect it to benefit identified children. The way in which this allocation is spent is reviewed in the September of each academic year.

The statement below details our school’s use of pupil premium (and recovery premium for the 2022 to 2023 academic year) funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils.

It outlines our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.

PE and Sports Premium

Sports funding is provided by the Government each year to schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. As a school we must spend the additional funding on improving provision of PE and sport.
