Pupil Premium

Our vision

 In keeping with the original aims of our founder Dr Charles Sloper, we hold the belief that no child should be disadvantaged in their development. We are committed to the view that all children should have opportunity and provision to enable them to fulfil their potential.

The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 and is paid to Local Authorities as a grant. It is based on how many pupils are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or for Looked After Children (LAC) such as in fostering arrangements or whose parents serve in the Armed Forces.

To see if your child is eligible, please contact the school office or follow this link:


You can also apply by telephone.  Just call Dorset Direct on 01305 221000.

Please read the information below which gives details of our Pupil Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
