Pupil Premium funding was launched in 2011-12.
The funding is based on the number of children in school who have been eligible for free school meals in the past six years, are in care or adopted from care or have a parent in one of the services.
If your child does not currently have free school meals but may be eligible because of your family's income level, please contact the school office (in confidence) to register them.
Even if you do not wish your child to have the meal, school can still claim the Pupil Premium.
Please note that from September 2014 all children in YR, Y1 and Y2 will be entitled to a free school meal, - this does not mean they will be entitled to Pupil Premium funding.
If you have not previously registered your child to claim free school meal entitlement you still need to do this for school to claim Pupil Premium.
In 2016-2017 we received an allocation of £4,400
The Pupil Premium money was used for literacy intervention that had a positive impact on the children's learning over the above period.
A laptop was purchased and we were able to buy in specialist services.
In 2017-2018 the school will recieve £3,600. This will be used in the following way
- purchasing specialist teacher support
- subsidising educational visits to enhance the curriculum
- subsidising workshops in school to develop children's skills
- purchasing of resources for learning and teaching
- purchasing of assessments in specialist fields
The impact of this will be to:
- enhance children's learning by providing wider educational experiences
- enable more focused support to be given to individuals
- children in receipt of pupil premium made good progress from their starting points
If you would like more information please contact the headteacher or the Chair of our governing body, Mrs Lynn Sutcliffe.
Our designated Pupil Premium governor is Mr Matt Nickson.
