Inspired to be our best.....
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to tackle ‘educational inequality’ by raising achievement and improving outcomes for children from low-income families who are or have been eligible for free school meals in the last six years, pupils in care or adopted from care, and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The additional funding is given to schools to help them narrow the attainment gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
Annual Pupil Premium rates are currently:
Children eligible for Free School Meals in the last 6 years - £1320 per pupil
Children from service families - £300 per pupil
Children in care or adopted from care - £1900 per pupil
Schools have the freedom to spend the Premium in a way that they think will best support the raising of achievement for their children. The impact of the school’s decisions is closely monitored by the Academy Committee in relation to the progress the identified children make throughout the school year and year-on-year. In addition, Ofsted hold the school to account for the progress that Pupil Premium children make.
PRINCIPLES FOR THE ALLOCATION OF FUNDING

Pupil Premium funding is targeted at accelerating progress to move children to at least age related expectations. During 2017-18 we plan to use the Premium in the following ways:
