Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is an allocated amount of funding calculated for each school according to the number of children who have been in receipt of Free School Meals at any time during the preceding six years.

Our monitoring and evaluation of achievement of children entitled to Pupil Premium shows that they achieve very well by comparison to national expectations.

The amount received for the academic year 2013-2014 is £4,500. We have spent the money as follows:

  • Extra Learning Support to provide focused teaching in writing, maths and reading
  • A spelling programme to enhance and accelerate learning
  • Training and professional development for teachers and teaching assistants
