The Pupil Premium funding (£1445 per child) from the Department of Education is given to schools to support pupils who qualify for the funding, such as children who are looked after or are entitled to free school meals, (not to be confused with Universal Free School Meals, which are currently available to all children in EYFS through to Year Two).
Our aim is to ensure that all our pupils achieve their full potential and that there is no attainment gap between the outcomes achieved for our pupils who qualify for the funding and other pupils nationally and within school.
In addition, we aim to ensure that all children who receive the pupil premium funding have access to a broad range of opportunities and extra-curricular experiences. We hope that these opportunities support our children to be happy and confident and flourish through a range of activities.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please speak to Miss Ludlow, our Pupil Premium Lead.
