Pupil Premium & Service Children

Last modified: July 19, 2017

The Government allocates funding to schools to support raising attainment for specific groups of children these groups include children who are eligible for free school meals, children in care and children who have a parent who works in the armed services.

School and Governors work in partnership to carefully plan how we allocate this funding according to the needs of our children.
