We have high aspirations and ambitions for all our pupils, and we are determined to ensure that all our pupils are given every chance to realise their full potential, including our pupils in receipt of pupil premium funding. PP funding represents 7.1% of our overall budget, and we are committed to providing personalised targeted support to ensure that it is spent to maximum effect for identified pupils.
We also make available a £100 bursary per year to each of our PP children that can be used to buy school uniform and pay for trips and clubs too. Children in receipt of free school meals are also entitled to a 50% reduction on the cost of school trips. For more information on free school meals please visit the West Northamptonshire Council website.
Sharon Green, our Assistant Head Teacher, is your first point of contact if you have any queries relating to Pupil Premium. Louise Fadal is our Learning Mentor for Pupil Premium and her role is to check the children are happy and to oversee their pastoral needs are being met. Louise is the first point of contact if you have any queries relating to trips, clubs or buying uniform.

Catch Up Premium - Covid-19
Following school closure in March 2020, the Government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up. This included a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time.
The universal catch-up premium funding is available for all state-funded mainstream and special schools, and alternative provision.
Funding has been allocated on a per pupil basis, providing the equivalent of £80 for each pupil in years reception through to 6.
Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. Please see our Catch Up Strategy below.
