What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Its purpose is to provide additional funding to support schools in raising attainment for those children who are eligible for free school meals, or who are in the care of the local authority. It has been recognised that in general these groups have a lower attainment than those from less disadvantaged backgrounds. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit to support targeted pupils.
The school’s pupil premium funding will benefit pupils from those vulnerable groups either directly or indirectly.
