Schools receive a payment, Pupil Premium, for each child who is currently eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or has been eligible for Free School Meals with the last six years (FSM Ever 6). This payment was £1455 per pupil for 2023-2024. Children who are looked after (CLA), or children from service personnel, are also allocated funds within this Pupil Premium.
Schools are required to produce a strategy statement giving an overview of how it intends to spend its money for each academic year. See below for our latest statement:
The model used is based on updated DfE guidance produced in September 2021. The school keeps a more detailed impact document for use by staff, governors and OfSTED.
In addition to this funding, the school also receives Sports Premium funding which again is a ring-fenced pout of money used to ensure quality opportunities for PE in a school. Our strategy document for this money can be found under the statutory information page.
