Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium 2016/17 - £151,940


The pupil premium is spent on a range of initiatives in school aimed at improving opportunity, provision and achievement across the curriculum.


These include:


  • Maintaining staffing and resources in the custom built Booster/Intervention room. One to one and small group learning takes place on a daily basis in reading, writing and maths.


  • A contribution to the funding of educational visits to promote situational cognition. We currently make over 175 educational visits per year.


  • A contribution towards the provision of school uniform for every child in school. This ensures that all children look smart and are proud to wear the school badge. This also helps families financially.


  • Purchasing of visual and physical resources to support learning.
