What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a Government fund given to schools for eligible pupils; to ensure that all children have an equal opportunity to learn and succeed. Schools are given £1300 for each eligible pupil. 

What is Pupil Premium used for?

This extra funding allows us to provide additional staff and resources, bringing learning benefits to eligible pupils as well as all children throughout the school. It is also used to subsidise after school clubs (1 full term each year for each eligible child), school trips, specific interventions and staff training. The named governor who overseas the Pupil Premium funding is Lydia Naughton.
