Pupil Premium & COVID-19 Catch-up

Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium grant is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible under-achievement.   These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals or who have been at some point in the last 6 years; those looked after by the Local Authority and children of Armed Services personnel.

The government believes that allocating the Pupil Premium grant is the best way to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.  It is up to schools to decide how the pupil premium is spent.

All schools are required to report the amount of funding received and how this is being used.  Once information is available, the impact of the funding should also be reported.  

Please see the following document for details of our  Pupil Premium Strategy :

The Department for Education has produced a template to be used from the 2021-2022 academic year. We are in the process of reviewing our Pupil Premium Strategy and the new report will be uploaded to the website shortly.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Catch-Up Premium

During the 2020-2021 academic year the school also received a catch-up premium which to fund specific activities to support our pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year.

We have flexibility to spend this funding in the best way for our pupils and circumstances. Follow the link below to see our plans for spending this funding:
