Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a government initiative designed to target resources on those students who have been on Free School Meals at any point over the past 6 years; those who are Children Looked After or have ceased to be because of adoption, a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or residence order; students whose parents serve or have served in the armed forces during the last six years or are in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

Details of how we use this money to support the students in the curriculum are included here:
