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.

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 has continued with these strategies during 2014/15.
