Pupil Premium

As you are aware schools have been given additional funding to support students who receive free school meals or who have received free school meals in the last six years. Students who have a parent/carer in the Armed Forces also receive extra funding.

From September 2012 schools have been required to publish how much additional funding they receive and how it has been spent. 

We have produced a detailed provision map for students who receive free school meals. We also recognise that not all students who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for FSM. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium Funding to also support any student or groups of students which the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Covid Catch-Up Premium


The Covid 'Catch-Up' premium was formally launched in March 2013 as part of the government's commitment to providing additional funding to support Year 7 pupils who failed to reach level 4 in reading and/or maths during Key Stage 2.


Schools receive an additional premium of £500 for each 'Catch-Up' pupil. Schools are expected to use the extra funding to finance the delivery of initiatives aimed at accelerating progress and closing the identified gap. The funding is not ring-fenced, allowing schools to use the premium to finance literacy and numeracy schemes which reflect the needs of their students. 


The government has committed to continuing 'Catch-Up' funding for at least the duration of the current spending review.
