The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between themselves and their peers. The funding is allocated to schools for children from Reception to Year 11.
The government has identified the following groups as being eligible for the pupil premium funding:
Schools are free to spend their Pupil Premium as they see fit. However, we will be held to account for how we have used the additional funding to narrow the gap for these targeted pupils. We are required to publish online how we have used the premium. This is to ensure that parents and other stakeholders are made fully aware of the impact of this additional resourcing on learning and achievement outcomes within our school.
