Trail : home / INFORMATION / Policies & Reports / Pupil Premium : Pupil Premium 2014-15



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 2013/14 the school received £60,369

In 2014/15 the school received £84,400


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.
