The government introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. The premium is a specific amount of money awarded for any child who receives free school meals or has been eligible to receive free meals within the previous six years. A grant is also given for any pupils who are in care or have been adopted or have left care under special guardianship or a residential order.
The school will also receive a premium grant for children of any servicemen.
The purpose of the Pupil Premium Grant is to enable schools to narrow the attainment gap between children who are regarded as disadvantaged and their peers. Below you will find a report which details our Pupil Premium allocation. We do not publish the attainment outcomes of our pupils receiving the premium as, due to the small number, this would breach confidentiality. If you have a specific and appropriate interest in these outcomes then a discussion can be held with the headteacher.

|Pupil Premium Grant received||£14040|
|Total number of pupils entitled to premium||9|
|The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. In most cases the Pupil Premium is paid directly to schools, allocated to them for every pupil who receives or has received free school meals at any point in the last six years, whose parent is a member of the armed forces (Service Premium,) a looked after child or a child adopted from care. Schools decide how to use the funding, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision their pupils need|
