Pupil Premium

Please find below, our most recent document on Pupil Premium for the school.


Pupil premium funding was introduced in 2011 to help schools to close the attainment gap between children from different socio-economic backgrounds. The sums of money paid to schools vary depending on whether the school is primary or secondary and which category the pupil comes under.


Pupil premium is not a personal budget for individual pupils, and schools do not have to spend pupil premium so that it solely benefits eligible pupils.

Pupil premium can be used to support other pupils with identified needs, such as pupils who have or have had a social worker, or pupils who act as a carer. It can also be used for whole class interventions, for example high-quality teaching, which will also benefit non-disadvantaged pupils.


This table shows how the pupil premium grant is allocated to schools and local authorities in financial year 2023-24, based on per pupil rates.
