Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals; those looked after by the local authority and children of armed services personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.

Pupil Premium is allocated to schools from central Government and is clearly identifiable. Schools then decide how the Pupil Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

The Pupil Premium Grant for 2016 to 2017 is as detailed in this document: Pupil Premium Support Grant

Here is a copy of our Award letter too: Pupil Premium Award Letter

Please note we would never ask a child to gather donations for our school by collecting door to door. If we fundraise, this is done in school and managed by our Care, Guidance and Support team.

Please remember that your child needs to be in their line for five to nine every morning. Parents/carers of children who are consistently late for school will be challenged by members of staff. Thanks for your help with this!!

If your child has any lost property, please speak to Miss Nellis, who?ll be happy to help!

Don?t forget you can always find out more about our school by looking at our zone blogs, our Facebook and Twitter pages.
