A foundation for success since 1932

Pupil Premium

Key Principles

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools to support pupils who receive free school meals (or who have received free school meals in the last 6 years), looked after children and those children whose parents serve in the armed forces. Each year, we report on how we have used the pupil premium funding and the impact it has had on pupil progress. Please find the strategy document below to see further information regarding the specific use of this funding.

Key Barriers

Possible key barriers to these pupils may be:

  • Lower attainment
  • Lower attendance in school
  • Lack of participation in extra-curricular activities
  • Limited aspirations
  • Lower self-confidence and motivation
  • Reading levels below age-related expectations

Addressing individual needs

Specific interventions to address these gaps include:

  • Increasing students’ cultural capital and curiosity through engagement with extra-curricular activities and trips
  • Encouraging a thirst for learning through Independent Learning Opportunities
  • Mentoring schemes - using both internal and external support
  • Targeted intervention and study groups

Equality of Opportunity

This funding is used to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their background or financial situation, achieve the best quality of education and reach their full potential. This support includes, but is not limited to:

  • Subsidised school trips
  • Breakfast clubs
  • Additional tuition and intervention
  • Peripatetic music tuition
  • Subsidised revision materials
  • Support with uniform and equipment
