The pupil premium, which was introduced in 2011, gives schools extra funding to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils from reception to year 11 and close any gap between them and their peers.
Schools receive additional funding each year for each primary-aged child registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last six years.
The school receives additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Schools must use this to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education and sport that they they offer. This means they should use this funding to develop or add to the physical education and sport activities offered or to build capacity to ensure improvements will benefit children joining the school in future years.
The school has received funding (including the Covid-19 Recovery Premium) as part of the government’s package to support education recovery. The Recovery Premium provides additional funding for state-funded schools. Building on the pupil premium, this funding will help schools to deliver support for disadvantaged pupils.
