Pupil Premium

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.

Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.  Information about our school pupil premium strategy is given in the documents below, although a more detailed analysis of impact at individual level is held at school. This information is confidential and cannot be shared due to small numbers. Our Pupil Premium Policy can be found here.

Our aim is to ensure all pupils experience high quality teaching and learning, enabling good progress to be made by all, including those experiencing disadvantage. As small schools we do not have many pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding, however a range of interventions are used to deliver tailored support, addressing specific areas of learning identififed for improvement.
