Pupil Premium

The Pupil PremiumThe Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers.  The amount a school receives is dependent on the number of children who are eligible.  All schools are required to report on the amount of funding they receive and how it is being used.

We are committed to supporting improved outcomes for our disadvantaged pupils and enable them the overcome barriers to learning and be happy and successful at CCI. 


Our Pupil Premium lead is Mrs Jen Rylands. If you would like further information about our approach to PP or to find out if your child might be eligible for PP funding then please get in contact with her: 


Please read the information below which gives details of how we use our Pupil Premium Funding.
