Trail : home / INFORMATION / Policies & Reports / Pupil Premium : Pupil Premium 2015-16



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 2014/15 the school received £84,400


The school’s published outcomes at the end of 2014/15 year were very encouraging indicating that this funding had been used appropriately and effectively.

Example of impact in 2015 included:


  • 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 will continue with these strategies during 2016/17.
