Pupil Premium

We do have additional ‘Pupil Premium’ funding available from the government to raise the levels of achievement and improve outcomes for specific groups of students in all key stages (KS3,4 and 5).  These include students who are eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those families with parents in the armed forces.  Whist we are aware of most of the students for whom these criteria apply, there may be some families whose entitlement we are unaware.  If your circumstances change, you may be eligible for free school meals and to some funding from the pupil premium which can be used as contributions for a variety of educational purposes, including trips. If you wish to discuss pupil premium and your potential entitlement, please contact Mrs Alison Pointon, our School Business Manager.
