Welcome to our section on Pupil Premium. Here you will find information about the Pupil Premium Grant.
The Pupil Premium Grant is additional funding provided from the government to help schools improve the educational outcomes of disadvantaged students. This grant is applicable from reception to Year 11.
This grant funding is based on the number of students in the following groups:
- Students who are claiming, or have claimed, free school meals within the last 6 years.
- Students who are looked after or who are previously looked after.
Service Pupil Premium (SSP)
- Students who have parents/carers currently serving in the armed forces or are retired on a pension from the Ministry or Defence (the Service pupil premium is not based on disadvantage, but is to support with pastoral care).
The funding is used to provide a programme of interventions planned by our Curriculum and Pastoral teams, with a specific focus to narrow the gaps in progress and attainment for disadvantaged students. The whole school aim is for students eligible for Pupil Premium Grant funding to perform better than non-Pupil Premium students nationally. The Senior Leadership team prioritise the support and tracking of Pupil Premium students and work across the school to champion their needs.
The full Pupil Premium Statement for 2020-21 can be found below.
