Pupil Premium Funding
Meeting the educational needs of potentially disadvantaged children
The aim of the Government Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among pupils in the following categories who receive or are entitled to Free School Meals, children in care (Looked After Children) and children with parents in the Armed Forces.
The funding is used to enable an education which will increase life choices for children who fall into one of the three categories above, enabling them to have more choices in further education and later careers. Children will be supported to attain and progress well, reducing any gap between high and low income families.
We have a range of strategies and programmes to support all our children with additional strategies for children identified as being in receipt of the “pupil premium” when they are needed.
