Publicly funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils.
Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:
- Generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school.
- Often do not perform as well as their peers.
The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

Each autumn, the school reviews the impact of the spending from the previous year. Plans are then drawn up for the upcoming year, ensuring the needs of our new intake are taken into account. These plans are shared with all stakeholders for input before the finalised plans are published on this page by the 31st December each year (at the very latest).
In 2021-2022, state primary and secondary schools will recieve a one-off recovery premium to help pupils catch up on lost learning due to the pandemic. Full details for the recovery premium can be found here. Information on how we use the recovery premium will be included on the same template as our pupil premium plan.
