Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Starting in 2012, the Department for Education committed itself to providing extra financial support for students in state-funded schools who:

  • were in receipt of free school meals (FSM) (and indeed those who had been in receipt of FSM in the previous 6 years)
  • were looked-after children
  • were part of a "forces family" i.e. their parents were employed in the armed forces.

Our commitment to our Pupil Premium students

Our aim is to spend this extra money to the best benefit of our 248 Pupil Premium (PP) students. Specifically we shall seek to:

  • improve our students levels of attainment and progress
  • close the attainment gap between PP students and non-PP students
  • provide our students with the care, guidance and support which they need to succeed
  • encourage our students to take part in our extra-curricular provision.
