Pupil Premium Action Plans

In 2011, the government introduced ‘The Pupil Premium Grant’ which allocates additional funding into a schools budget.

Pupil Premium provides funding specifically for children from lower income families or service families who have registered. The grant aims to raise achievement and improve outcomes for these children. It is important that families register for pupil premium funding as schools are not automatically informed of entitlement.


We use the grant in a number of ways, whilst ensuring that those who are eligible are supported in order for them to achieve their maximum potential academically and socially. The main ways in which the money can be spent are:

  • To fund or part-fund the provision of Teaching Assistant support for individuals, small groups and classes to help children to achieve their academic potential.
  • To fund the provision of specific resources to support and improve achievement.
  • To fund the provision of Teaching Assistant support for non-academic interventions to help increase self-esteem, develop social skills, improve relationships, confidence etc.
  • To subsidise school uniform, music lessons, extra-curricular activities, trips, visitors and performers to school.
