Additional support and access to extra-curricular activities and programs
The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
In 2017- 18 the school received £195 620 of Pupil Premium funding.
The money is allocated to ensure children can achieve their potential academically, physically, socially and emotionally under four main areas:
Additionally in the curriculum – children eligible for FSM are less likely to have access to books and study space
Targeted support – small group or 1:1 interventions to ensure children eligible for FSM can achieve their academic potential
Richness of curriculum – access to opportunities which may not be possible outside of school such as music lessons or visits to a museum
Wellbeing – poverty can be linked to our Mental Health. We aim to ensure PPI children are supported emotionally and socially so that they feel safe, happy and confident

Over a 3 month period our Catch Up Maths programme ensured all children made an average of 8.21 months progress. Those eligible for PP funding made 10.5 months progress (Non PP funded progress was 7.62 months)
PP funding ensured 56 children received weekly music lessons in 2017 – 2018. This has given access to further opportunities such as Orchestra as well as building confidence, self – awareness and collaboration
