Pupil Premium Funding - 2016/2017
What is Pupil Premium?
Pupil Premium funding was launched by the Government in April 2011 in order to raise the attainment of pupils that may be vulnerable to under achievement, and close the gap between them and their peers. The funding is now allocated to children who are looked after by the local authority, those who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in the last six years and for those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces.
The money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
As a school, we decide how the Pupil Premium is allocated and we are accountable for the use of the funds. We have a responsibility to report on the progress of children receiving Pupil Premium and demonstrate how we are using the grant to have a positive impact.
It is our aim to ensure that all children from disadvantaged backgrounds are able to make the same or better progress than their peers.
