Pupil Premium Funding

The government’s Pupil Premium funding is used to support the learning and development of our disadvantaged children and can be used on specific interventions or on whole school approaches. 


We gain additional Pupil Premium funding, if your child: 


  • Is currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM)
  • Has at any point during the last 6 years received FSM (known as Ever 6 FSM)
  • Is adopted from local authority care or has since left care
  • Has a parent who currently works in the armed forces or has done so in the last 5 years (Ever 5 In Service Child)


As a school, we are free to decide how to use the funding to meet our disadvantaged pupils’ needs.


If you think your child may be eligible for extra funding, please apply through the school office.
