Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Purpose of the Pupil Premium
The pupil premium is additional funding given to maintained schools to narrow attainment gaps between disadvantaged pupils and other pupils.
It is also used to support pupils with parents in the regular armed forces - this part of it is known as the service premium.
The grant may be spent:
- For the educational benefit of pupils registered at our school or at other maintained schools or academies
- On community facilities, such as charitable services which benefit pupils at our school or their families or people who live or work in your school's locality
