Pupil Premium

Please read our report for parents on how we spent our Pupil Premium funding in 2011-12. Please note the following guidance from the Department for Education’s website:

“This money is allocated to schools by the Dept for Education in addition to main school funding. The Government believes that the Pupil Premium is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.”

“Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit. However they are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families. New measures are being included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.”

Collective Worship

Collective worship takes place every day in our school. The cycle of collective worship revolves around our core values: creativity, trust, hopefulness, friendship, forgiveness and compassion. Each half-term we take one of the values and explore this in the light of Christian worship whilst also acknowledging those of other faiths and of none.
Collective worship is monitored by governors.
Collective worship times are as follows, with Friday being a special celebration assembly.
    • Monday – 11.55
    • Tuesday – 11.55
    • Wednesday 11.45 (Class collective worship)
