Pupil Premium

Our school receives our funding directly from the Educational Funding Authority. The amount that we receive is largely decided by how many pupils we have and we receive additional funds for pupils whose families receive certain benefits – this additional funding is called the Pupil Premium. This funding increase was set up to ensure that all pupils have the equal opportunity to achieve their full potential.

As a school we spend that money in ways which can be as individual as the need of each child. We also fund whole school initiatives to improve wellbeing, attainment and progress. If your child is one of those for whom we receive additional funding, we will contact you to invite you in for a chat about your ideas for how we can best support your child to be the very best that they can be.
