The Pupil Premium is funding in addition to the school’s budget. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. In 2020 the school received approximately £71,285 in Pupil Premium allocations for 52 children

- Intervention teaching assistants in KS1 and KS2.
- Additional TA hours to support intervention programmes throughout the school and booster sessions for Y6 pupils with a qualified teacher.
- Support and advice for families around the areas of attendance and punctuality by the school’s Parent Support Officer.
- Wider opportunities class music sessions in Year 4, 5 & 6.
- Mindful sessions to support disadvantaged pupil's emotional health and well-being.
