Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is an amount of money allocated to schools by the government and is based on the number of children in a school having free school meals. The aim of the pupil premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged children in the school.

As set out in the Coalition Government document, the pupil premium will provide additional funding to schools for more disadvantaged pupils to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as pupils from other higher income families.



For the academic year 2023-2024, we are due to receive £318,184 in pupil premium

Sports Funding

The PE and sports allocation is funding that is provided to schools, in addition to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

The government is providing additional funding to improve PE and sport in primary schools. This funding-provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport-will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
