In 2011/12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium Initiative. This money is allocated to schools based initially on the number of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM), Service Pupils and Looked After Children (LAC), and over the years now includes those pupils who have been adopted from care.The amounts are as follows per pupil: FSM – £1,320, Service Pupils – £300, AFC and LAC – £1,900.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying school budget, in a way they believe will best support the raising of attainment and help overcome barriers to learning for the most vulnerable pupils. To help you understand it further, please see Key Facts produced by the Department of Education: Gov.UK Pupil Premium.
The school’s Pupil Premium Lead is Mr James Rourke (Headteacher).
He is supported by the school’s Inclusion Leader and SENDCo, Mrs Jane Hitchon.
Our designated Inclusion governor is Mrs Sue Perutz.
Our designated Pupil Premium governor is Miss Rachel Lovelady.
