Pupil Premium

We receive a grant from the government every year which we use in order to meet these key objectives:

  • Raise progress and narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils/students and their peers (measured in gap between PP and non-PP LoP, particularly in English and Maths)
  • Increase social mobility and address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for pupil premium and others, improving engagement with education.
  • So that we make a significant impact on students’ education and lives.

We get the grant from the government for children who are in one of these categories:

  • If you get free school meals, either at the moment or at any point in the last six years (since September 2009)
  • If you are a Looked After Child.
  • If you are adopted from care or have left care on a special guardianship order or child arrangements order (previously known as a residence order).
  • If you are a service child, or have a parents who were in the services from January 2011
