Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium funding is allocated to effectively target additional support where it is needed most. In our school, this support is organised and led by Mrs Stillings and Mrs Whitfield.

The nominated governor is Ms Murray.

The Pupil Premium (PP) is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The funding is allocated to Local Authorities and schools with pupils from Reception to Y11 who are eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any point in the last six years, are looked after or previously looked after.

 To date we have received the following funding:
