Schools are funded based on the number of children at the school. Schools with children eligible for Free School Meals, children of Service families or Looked After children (children in care arrangements) receive additional funding to support the needs of these learners. This is called Pupil Premium. There is a requirement for schools to report Pupil Premium funding on a school website and its impact.
During this academic year we received £12,000 for our Pupil Premium children. This was again used to employ the same two Teaching Assistants who continued to deliver the same high quality support. Please see Pupil Premium Strategy for more details.
During the above academic year we received £10,960 for our Pupil Premium children.

We also subsidised school trips and activities for these children.
All Pupil Premium pupils made at least good progress and many made outstanding progress.
