Pupil Premium

 

Pupil Premium is additional government funding for any pupil who is eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) either currently, or at any time over the last 6 years. Nationally, the statistics show that students who are eligible for FSM do not make the same rates of progress and perform less well than their peers in external exams. The aim of this funding is to try to diminish that difference.

 

We have allocated our Pupil Premium funding to initiatives that give pupils every opportunity to reach their full potential, both academically and socially. The funding allocation for 2017/18 was £151,156 and was spent on the following initiatives:
