Pupil Premium – What is it?
The Pupil Premium is money given to local authorities and schools with pupils on roll that have been eligible for free school meals (FSM) at any time in the last six years. The school has the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the main school budget, in a way we think will best address inequalities, tackle disadvantage and support the raising of attainment for our pupils.

How do I apply for Pupil Premium funding?
All Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils are now entitled to have free meals without it being dependent on family income. However, this makes it harder for us to find out which pupils are eligible for the Pupil Premium. If you are in receipt of any of the benefits listed below then the school may be able to receive this extra funding to support your child/children
You can get a form from the school office to apply for the funding, or visit the Cambridgeshire County Council website.
If you are unsure or require any help filling in the form, then please do not hesitate to contact the school.
As with last year a "pupil premium group of governors" have met with the headteacher to talk about how we are using our pupil premium grant and working with the children who are eligible for the pupil premium grant.
At the meetings the group has discussed future proposals or recommendations for 2016/17 with budgetary implications based on the impact of the 2015/16 provision.
These meetings have included conversations on
-the funding spent and the impact the provision has had on the children
-the confidence of the children
-the standards of the children
-the timing of the provision
-the case studies presented
- the personnel involved
