Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is a grant allocated to the school according to the number of pupils who claim free school meals (or who have during the last 6 years), have a parent in the forces, or are in foster care. This money is used to support teaching and learning in the school and to support the pastoral well-being of pupils and their families to ensure that all groups of pupils achieve what they are capable of.

We carefully plan what to spend our pupil premium grant on and monitor the impact on children's well being, progress and achievement.

Below is a report into our pupil premium spend for 2017-18. The new plan for 18/19 is also below but will be regularly reviewed for effectiveness to adjust the spend as required.

Free School Meals

If you receive any of the following benefits you may be entitiled to claim free school meals for your children

  • Income Support
  • Income based Job Seeker’s Allowance
  • Income related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Guarantee element of State Pension Credit
  • Child Tax Credit, as long as you do not get a Working Tax Credit  and have an annual income (as assessed by HM Revenues & Customs) that does not exceed £16,190
  • If you are supported under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
  • Working Tax Credit during the four-week period immediately after your employment finishes or after you start to work less hours per week.

ALL pupils in reception, year 1 and 2 are entitled to a free school meal regardless of income, however if you do claim any of the stated benefits it is enormously helpful to us if you apply for Free School meals anyway as it means that we, as a school, receive extra funding which can be used to support teaching and learning in the school.
