The Pupil Premium is a grant that is given to the school to support children who are in low-income families and who may need additional support to achieve their best in school. Any parent who registers their child for Free School Meals automatically triggers additional grant to the school. For this reason we ask all parents to register - even if they do not want the free meal. Children who qualify for Pupil premium then have reduced costs for school clubs, music lessons and residential visits.
We also provide additional intervention in school to support children and help to 'close the gap' between the most able and the lower achievers.
