Every school is given additional funding for disadvantaged pupils.
This is to provide targeted support in order to diminish the difference in attainment between disadvantaged pupils and the rest of their peers.
Pupils generate Pupil Premium funding if they have received or been eligible for free school meals at any time during the last six years (this does not include universal free school meals for infants) or if they have been in the care of a local authority for one day or more (either currently in care or previously adopted).
The report below details the pupil premium funding received for 2021-22.
