Pupil Premium Funding and Aims 2018-19

Our priorities and how we will use our pupil premium funding


Pupil premium is additional funding for schools to support them in raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to diminish the difference between them and their peers.

For 2018/19 the Government have allocated £1320 per pupil for deprivation, £300 per pupil for service children and £1900 per pupil for post looked after children.

Total Funding 2018/19

Number of Pupil Premium children



  • The amount of support that is available at home.
  • Language and communication skills.
  • A lack of self-confidence, low aspiration including attendance.
  • Behavioural difficulties and emotional needs.
  • Complex family situations that affect how well a child flourishes. (This can sometimes be for a short period of time but can also be long running and stressful for the child.)
  • Multiple aspects of disadvantage including specific learning difficulties, special educational needs.

Following careful evaluation of the attainment and progress of children of disadvantage in 2017/18 through discussion with children, their families, statutory and non-statutory data the following priorities have been identified for the academic year 2018/19.
