Pupil Premium


The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that we can support our disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. The aim is to ensure all children achieve as well as they possibly can.

Our ultimate objectives are:

  • To narrow the attainment gap between disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils.
  • For all disadvantaged pupils in school to make or exceed nationally expected progress rates.
  • To support our children’s health and wellbeing to enable them to access learning at an appropriate level.

We aim to do this through:

  • Ensuring that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.
  • Ensuring that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups, this includes ensuring that the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils are adequately assessed and addressed.
  • When making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
