The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.
Pupil premium funding is available to both mainstream and non-mainstream schools, like special schools and pupil referral units.
Pupil premium is paid for pupils who are or have been, over the last six years, eligible for free school meals; are from military families or are looked after by the Local Authority.
The school uses the funds for additional provision which aims to support raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils as well as providing opportunities for these children that they might otherwise miss out on.
In 2014/15 we received £71,500. In both 2015/16 and 2016/17 this increased to £84,000.
