The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding. The allocation of additional funding is provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.
In most cases the 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.
We assure parents that all matters regarding the use of Pupil Premium funds are treated with discretion and in confidence. If you think your child may be eligible for free school meals please visit the school to discuss this with us.

Pupil Premium Allocation and Impact
The Government began providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 and beyond to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. In the academic year 2016-17 we were allocated a total of £8380. Click on the link to our plan below to see how this money has been allocated and will be spent.
Swimming analysis: In addition to the impact of our Sport Premium spending we regularly take part in weekly swimming sessions in order to ensure that as many of our children as possible reach the required expectation to be able to:
“Swim confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres.”
In 2016-2017 81.25% of our Year 6 children left us being able to attain this competency and 81.81% of our Year 5 pupils were operating at this level.
