School Complaints Procedure
Pupil Premium Information
Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is allocated to schools in addition to their main budgets to support schools across the country in reducing the attainment gap that currently exists between disadvantaged pupils and their peers. The pupil premium grant is paid to each school by a specific grant based on the school census figures for pupils registered as eligible for free school meals (FSM) in Reception to Year 11. Schools receive funding for pupils who have been registered for free school meals at any point in the last six years, children who have been in care continuously for more than six months and children of service personnel (this service premium is designed to address the emotional and social well-being of service personnel pupils).
PE & Sport Funding Information
Our school receives Physical Education support premium funding. How this is spent and relevant information is detailed in the documents below. Last year's allocation made a positive difference to the attainment of all pupils as evidenced by them meeting or exceeding age related expectations (ARE) and their enjoyment and enthusiasm for lessons and physical activity opportunities. The active lunchtime games are very popular. Lunchtime and Teaching Staff are gaining expertise and confidence from working alongside our PE and Sports Coach.
