Pupil Premium Spending – 2021-22
We have 8 children eligible for Pupil Premium Funding, out of the school total of 154 pupils.
This means that 5.2% of the school are eligible for this funding of £1345 per child per year.
The current funding for 2021-22 is £8070 but may increase from January 2022.
Schools are given a pupil premium for:
- Children who have qualified for free school meals at any point in the past six years.
- Children who are or have been looked after under local authority care for more than one day.
- Children from service families who receive a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.
