Pupil Premium

What is it?


The pupil premium is a grant given to schools for each child who currently claims free school meals or has done so in the past. It is vital that any parent whose child is eligible for pupil premium applies, even if they do not choose to claim the free meals, as the grant enables us to provide extra resources for your child.


What we do.


The government allows us to spend this money in a variety of ways. We make sure that it impacts the children positively by improving their literacy and mathematical skills, as well as their social and emotional well-being.
