What is Pupil Premium Funding?
Pupil Premium funding was introduced by the government to try to reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and increase social mobility thus enabling more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend top universities.
Funding is allocated to the following groups of students:
- Students receiving FSM
- Students no longer receiving FSM continue to receive PP for the following 6 years.
- Forces children
- Children who are or have been in care
As a school we closely monitor the impact of funding for individual students and a report is produced each academic year, usually at the end of November.
