The pupil premium is additional funding for schools aimed at raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities with the aim of closing the gap between them and their peers. It is paid by means of a specific grant based on the school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years in Reception and up to Year 11.
In addition the school will also receive additional funding for any pupil identified in the October census:-
- as having left local authority care as the result of adoption, a special guardianship order or a child arrangement order
- in local authority care
- recorded as both eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years and as being looked after.
For the academic year 2023/24 the school's projected amount of pupil premium funding is £119,970.
This includes the recovery premium grant, projected at £34,122 as part of the government's package of funding to support pupils whose education has been impacted by COVID-19.
