The Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
The Pupil Premium budget was introduced in April 2011 with the aim of “closing the gap” both academically and culturally for students that are allocated to work with pupils who have registered for free school means at any point in the last 6 years, Looked After Children (CLA) and children of service personnel.
In addition to the Pupil Premium, Post 16 students have access to the Post 16 Bursary which enables students from disadvantaged backgrounds to succeed post 16.
Our Pupil Premium Impact Reviews and Strategy Statement can be found on our Policies page.
Our key objectives:
High levels of progress in literacy/English and numeracy/Maths for all pupils eligible for PP.
Improved rates of progress across KS3 and 4 for more able learners eligible for PP.
Increased attendance rates
All Pupil Premium students will engage in the wider cultural, social and extra-curricular life of the school.
