The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces.
In our school, pupil premium funding is used to overcome key barriers to learning created by deprivation such as:
- low levels of language and literacy skills on entry into school, particularly in some boys
- a requirement for social and emotional support to build confidence, skills and drive to aspire higher and attain greater depth standards
- absence rates and learning gaps of some groups of pupils require support
Our pupil premium strategy is reviewed termly by the curriculum committee of the governing body and senior staff. The date of our next strategy review is May 2019.

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years until 2020 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
