Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is an opportunity to narrow the gap in achievement between disadvantaged pupils and their better-off peers.

Pupil premium funding is provided by the Department for Education to those pupils who have been entitled to Free School Meals at any point over the last six years or are (or have been) children in care.

How will we spend our Pupil Premium in 2017/18?

We have been allocated £245,520 for this financial year which has been allocated for use by the Governing Body to provide a range of support in order to improve outcomes for pupils.
