Pupil Premium Grant
The Pupil premium funding was introduced in April 2011, and is a grant based on the number of pupils registered eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. A premium has also been introduced for children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces and for looked after children. The Pupil Premium is used by the school to address any underlying inequalities between eligible children and their peers.
Objectives for the use of funding
To raise standards and improve progress.
To close the gap between the achievement and progress of Pupil premium pupils and their peers.
