Encouraging excellence, valuing people

Pupil Premium

The amount allocated to the school for 2016-17 is £95,370. The school plans to continue to support pupils in a variety of ways similar to the interventions put in place in 2014-15 and 2015-16. In addition, so far this year, the school has funded attendance at residential courses organised by the Armed Forces (Sea Cadets) for two pupils. 

 

The amount allocated to the school for 2015-16 was £94,357. The money will be spent supporting pupils in the most appropriate way to ensure they have the same experience as other pupils in the school and that they fulfil their potential. Such interventions will include additional mentoring, additional 1-1 support, especially in literacy and numeracy, funding small group work, contributing to, or paying entirely for, educational visits and trips, peripatetic music lessions, purchasing necessary school equipment and materials for pupils and paying for vocational college courses (including transport in some cases). We believe this wide variety of interventions, alongside whole school initiatives relating to teaching and learning, addresses the needs of pupils, recognises the necessity of considering different influences in a child's life and will  minimise the effects of a background which may be considered to be disadvantaged. The school keeps extremely detailed records of its spending on Pupil Premium pupils. Should anyone wish to view these records, please contact the Headteacher.

 

The amount allocated to the school for 2013-14 was £74,825.

The amount allocated to the school for 2012-13 was £43,800, which included back payment for all pupils who were on the free school meals register over the last 6 years.

The amount allocated to the school for 2011-12 was £14,640.
