Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
The Pupil Premium is an amount of money the government allocates to each school, to support all pupils to reach their potential. It is particularly aimed at pupils coming from disadvantaged backgrounds, who may also be in receipt of free school meals, children from service families or children in local authority care.
Please see the attached report for how we spent our allocation in 2018-19 and the impact of the agreed spending.
