Statistics & Results
The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
