The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and in 2012–13 individual schools were allocated funding for children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. If your child is eligible for free school meals, they will also be entitled to a sum of money paid to school to boost their learning, this is currently £1345. If a child has a parent who is in the Armed Forces, School receive £310 to support them. In addition, if a child is Looked After by the Local Authority School receive £1900 to support their education. If you think your child is entitled to any of these payments then please contact the School office.

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools. The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children in Year 1 to 6 they have in January of that year. The sport premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increase participation in PE and Sport. Prime Minister David Cameron announced in February 2014 that the Government will commit funding for the Primary PE and Sport Premium to 2020 if re elected.
