Pupil Premium, which was introduced in April 2011, is additional funding for schools aimed at raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils, and to close the gap between them and their peers. This is because evidence suggests that the average performance of disadvantaged children is below that of non-disadvantaged children and that progress is slower.

The Government’s current measure of disadvantage is any child who is or has been eligible to Free School Meals in the past six years.

As a school, we work alongside a number of other organisations in order to help our children to become educated citizens. We hope you find the links below helpful.
