Pupil Premium

Each year the school receives money in connection with the number of children who receive FSM (Free School Meals).


The goal is to increase the number of FSM children making more than expected progress so that not only their progress is in line with non-FSM but also the gap in attainment decreases too.

Pupil Premium for 2016/2017 is £7,920.

Pupil Premium for 2015/2016 was £14,520.
