Pupil Premium

Since April 2011, the government has introduced additional funding (Pupil Premium Grant - PPG) for schools to raise the attainment of pupils who:
 
  • are registered as eligible for free school meals
  • were eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years
  • are 'looked after' (adopted from care or under a special guardianship order)
  • have, or have had during the past 3 years, parents serving in the armed forces.
 
For the 2015 to 2016 financial year, funding for pupil premium for schools is:
 
  • £1,320 per pupil  of primary-school age
  • £1,900 per pupil who has been 'looked after'
Service premium provides extra funding (£300) for pupils who have, or have had in the last 3 years, a parent serving in the armed forces.
 
If you believe your child qualifies for pupil premium funding, please contact the School Office.
