The pupil premium is a sum of additional funding that is linked to the number of pupils on roll that are from lower income families. This funding is used to provide support for all those who require it, ensuring they have a good chance of achieving well in Reading, Writing and Maths.
Most funding is invested in highly skilled staff, who deliver focused teaching programmes that are nationally recognised as being highly effective.

The Government are not dictating how schools should spend this money, but are clear that schools will need to employ the strategies that they know will support their pupils to increase their attainment, and ‘narrow the gap’. Schools are accountable for the spending of this money. Please follow the links below for our Pupil Premium Policy and spending reports.
