What is Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium (PP) was introduced in April 2011, and is paid by means of a special grant based on school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for FSM in Reception to Year 6. (Also for those who have been eligible for FSM is the last 6 years) For Looked After children the PP was calculated using the Children Looked After data returns. The premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently working in the armed forces. This service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well being of these pupils. The PP is additional to main school funding and it will be used by this school to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible by ensuring that funding reaches the pupils who need it most.



  • The PP will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.
  • The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.
  • As far as its powers allow the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for PP and others.
  • We will ensure that that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes an impact on their education and lives.


School Policy

The Head Teacher and governing body have agreed a policy for PP to guide the use of funds and to ensure that it represents value for money.



The Head Teacher and the leadership team will regularly and rigorously monitor, evaluate and review the strategies we have put in place for PP and report to the Governing Body on its progress and impact.

  • Through our Christian school and ethos, we all aim to believe in ourselves, each other, our teachers, leaders and parents. With reflection and prayer, we trust in God that our prayers will be heard. We know that every child is a child of Jesus, treating everyone with respect and dignity that they deserve.

    Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you.
    Matthew 7:7
