The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. Schools were allocated additional funding to support children from low-income families who were eligible for free school meals, looked-after children and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being used and the impact of provision.
The Pupil Premium funding allows us to provide additional learning and enrichment opportunities to those pupils who might otherwise miss out. Through our use of Pupil Premium funding, we aim to offer and improve quality first teaching, intervention and other provision, so that the attainment gap is closed between those pupils for whom Pupil Premium funding is offered and other pupils.
Key Objectives to support in removing barriers to learning
