Introduction

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Additional funding is allocated to our school to support children from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Force. It is provided in order to give additional support and resources to narrow the attainment gap between these groups of children and other pupils. The funding aims to increase the rate of progress and raise attainment for these children specifically. It is for each school (the Governing Body with the Headteacher) to decide how the Pupil Premium funding is spent in the school.

All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used, and the impact of any work done. Towards the end of this document you can see what we have done in previous years.
