Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools according to numbers of pupils meeting the above criteria. The aim of the Government’s Pupil Premium is to raise achievement amongst socially disadvantaged children. It provides additional funding for disadvantaged pupils to ensure that they benefit from the same educational opportunities as pupils from more advantaged backgrounds with the aim of reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying school’s budget, in a way they think best in supporting the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils. The money is allocated to ensure pupils reach their full potential academically, socially and emotionally, to ensure self-esteem remains high and to ensure children are fully equipped to build upon their learning and therefore achieve successfully as they enter secondary education.
A current annual plan outlining intended support and expenditure can be found above alongside an analysis of the previous year’s expenditure and the impact of interventions. Pupil Premium Reports for previous years are available from the school.
