Premium Allocations

Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is additional funding provided by the Department of Education to individual schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. Funding is provide to “diminish the (attainment) difference” between children entitled to pupil premium and those classed as “other” (non-pupil premium).


Schools are free to make decisions on how to best spend their pupil premium funding but are accountable as spending must have a positive impact on overcoming educational barriers to learning.


Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Apply for Free School Meals


All children are eligible for free school meals if they’re in reception class; year 1; or year 2. We still ask that you apply using this form to prevent your child’s school missing out on additional funding which will benefit them for the rest of their primary education:

Sports Premium


The Government is provides ‘sports premium’ which is substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
