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.
