Pupil Premium and Free School Meals

We receive a grant from the government every year which we use in order to meet these key objectives...

  • Raise progress and narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these students and their peers (measured in gap between PP and non-PP, particularly in English and Maths)
  • Increase social mobility, add cultural capital and address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for pupil premium and others, improving engagement with education. So that we make a significant impact on students’ education and lives.

We get the grant from the government for children who are in one of these categories:

  • If you get free school meals, either at the moment or at any point in the last six years.
  • If you are a Looked After Child.
  • If you are adopted from care or have left care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order).
  • If you are a service child, or have a parent(s) who were in the services from January 2011.

Our PP Coordinator is Mr Marshall. If you have specific questions relating to the PP plan, funding and support, please contact him via this link.
