Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding allocated to schools based on the number of students who have been eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years.

Additional funding is also allocated for Looked After Children and children whose parents have served in the military.

The progress of Pupil Premium from Key Stage 2 to Key Stage 4 forms part of the school’s annual performance measures.

Pupil Premium funding is provided to schools rather than individual students. The school uses the funding for strategies that support the progress of identified students, targeting those who are at risk of underachieving (making less than expected progress).

Each year the school reviews the progress made (including subgroup analysis) within the Pupil Premium cohort and revises its action plans and spending priorities for the additional funding. This is summarised in the annual Pupil Premium report and plan.
