Trail : home / INFORMATION / Policies & Reports / Pupil Premium : Pupil Premium 2013-14



The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget.  The amount of this funding varies from school to school and is dependent on 3 factors: the number of children who are in the care of the local authority, the number of children who have an entitlement to a free meal and the number who have a parent(s) in the armed forces.


Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.


In 2012/13 the school received £35,511.


The school’s published outcomes at the end of the last school year were very encouraging indicating that this funding had been used appropriately and effectively.

Examples of impact in 2013/14 include:


·         Identified pupils making at least expected progress with some exceeding their school targets.

·         Improved attendance and punctuality for vulnerable pupils.

·         The gap between attainment/progress of most vulnerable pupils/identified pupils and their peers has reduced.


The school plans to continue with these strategies during 2014/15.
