Information about the Pupil Premium Grant
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their wealthier peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
We endeavour to support all eligible pupils we have on roll, in the aim of the grant funding, of tackling disadvantage and inequality, including diminishing any differences evident in outcomes.
The funding has been used in the following ways:
Intervention Programmes for children identified as needing to make accelerated progress in order to fulfil their potential. Interventions include: focused 1:1 and guided group work delivered by additional teaching and learning staff capacity,
