Pupil Premium

Since April 2011, the government has introduced additional funding (Pupil Premium Grant - PPG) for schools to raise the attainment of certain pupils.  These are currently pupils who:
  • are registered as eligible for free school meals (January 2021)
  • were eligible for free school meals at any point in the past 6 years (since May 2014)
  • are 'looked after' (adopted from care or under a special guardianship order)
  • have parents who are serving in the armed forces (census January 2021) or since January 2015.
For the 2021 to 2022 financial year, funding for pupil premium for schools is:
  • £1,345 per pupil of primary-school age
  • £2,345 per pupil who has been 'looked after'
Service premium provides extra funding (£310) for pupils who were recorded in the School Census in January 2020 as having a parent serving in the armed forces or since January 2015.
If you believe your child qualifies for pupil premium funding, please contact the School Office.
