Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
The school receives funding for:
- Pupils who are currently eligible for free school meals
- Pupils who have been eligible for free school meals in the past 6 years
- Pupils who have been adopted from care or who have left care
- Pupils who are looked after by the local authority
The Pupil Premium Strategy document below explains what this funding is spent on in our school and how it improves the outcomes for disadvantaged children.
