What is Pupil Premium?

 Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools for the specific purpose of boosting the attainment of pupils from low-income families. Funding is based on children who have registered for a free school meal at any point in the last 6 years, children who are in care or adopted, and children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.


What is our strategy?

Our strategy focuses on supporting disadvantaged children in the following ways:

  • to raise the attainment of Pupil Premium children in Reading, Writing and Maths
  • to reduce the attainment gap between Pupil Premium and non Pupil Premium children
  • to ensure we support Pupil Premium children to develop their early Reading skills and understanding of Phonics 
  • to reduce barriers to learning so children make good progress
