We are committed to overcoming barriers to learning and meeting the needs of all children by removing any attainment gaps between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged children.
We believe that all children have the ability to achieve the highest levels of attainment regardless of the challenging circumstances they may face. Therefore we positively target disadvantaged and vulnerable children in overcoming these challenges and removing gaps in attainment.
The Pupil Premium Grant is an annual supplement to the school’s budget to provide additional support for children who are: entitled to Free School Meals, have received FSM at any time in the last 6 years of school, are looked after, or has a parent(s) in the armed forces.
Parents and carers are invited to click on the links below to discover more of how the school utilises its Pupil Premium Grant funding and the impact that we are having.
If you feel your child is entitled to Pupil Premium funding, please contact the school office and ask to discuss the matter with Mr Paton or Mrs Pitt. All enquiries will be dealt with in the strictest of confidence.
In April 2021, the government again allocated an additional COVID Catch-Up Grant universally to all schools in response to the disruption caused to children’s learning throughout the coronavirus. This funding will be allocated to supporting disadvantaged and vulnerable children and those hardest hit by disrupted schooling.
