The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and children of armed services personnel.
The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.
Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and is clearly identifiable. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per FSM pupil, is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of any work done.
All matters regarding the use of Pupil Premium funds are treated with discretion and in confidence.

Pupil Premium 2015-2016
In 2015/16 the school received £38,280 for Pupil Premium.
This helped to contribute towards the cost for releasing Miss Graham who is tasked with tracking pupil premium children, planning appropriate intervention and evaluating the impact of any intervention in closing the gap for these pupils.
It enabled the school to support children across the school in order to enable them to make at least expected progress by partially funding the salaries of 3 teaching assistants and a P/T teacher to work with children with intervention programmes.
