Pupil Premium is a payment made to schools by the Government. It makes up part of the school’s funding, is received into our budget and is made available for use throughout the whole school. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
The 2021/22 Current Allocation is £153,985.
22.9% of pupils at Christ Church CofE (VA) Primary School are currently eligible for Pupil Premium funding (2021). 17.7 % of pupils nationally were eligible in 2020. We believe that this under-represents the level of deprivation amongst our families and we are currently reaching out to families to apply for Pupil Premium funding.
