Pupil Premium and Sports Premium

Pupil Premium

The government directs funding into schools according to the number of children who have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at some point in their primary school life, are designated as ‘looked after’ or have parents currently in the Armed Forces. If you feel your child  may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please register them on . Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean the school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that will be used to help your child in a whole host of different ways.


As with all schools, we are anxious that families in Years FS/1/2 are not applying for Pupil Premium funding due to the ‘Universal Free School Meals for all’ policy. As we have stated above, the funding stretches way, way beyond this so please do enquire regardless!


Please click on the documents below for information on what this additional funding has been used for.


The next review of our Pupil Premium spending will take place in April 2022.
