The school is allocated a sum of money called the “Pupil Premium”. The intention of this targeted funding is to improve the educational chances of students who may find circumstances outside school challenging due to financial hardship or other issues. The three identified groups for whom funding is provided are; students entitled to free school meals (FSM), students who have a parent working for the armed services and those children in local authority care (CLA). As a school, we identity barriers to learning for our Pupil Premium children and then ensure that we put appropriate provision in place to support the children with this. Further details of our spending, and the impact that this has had can be found in the following document.
