The Pupil Premium is allocated to children who are known to be eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Children and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. This also includes pupils eligible for FSM at any point in the last six years (known as the Ever 6 FSM measure)
We decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, as we are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils at our school.
We have high aspirations and ambitions for all our children and we believe that no child should be left behind. We strongly believe that all children want to learn and given the right learning environment can achieve success. Pupil premium funding currently represents just under 10% of the school’s budget. Outlined below are details of how we ensure it is spent to maximum effect.
**50% of the Forever 6 pupils in Year 6 also had significant SEND. This means that caution must be used when interpreting the Pupil Premium data. Excellent social, emotional and developmental progress was made by the pupils with SEND enabling them to make a smooth transition into mainstream secondary schools.*
