The Department for Education introduced the Pupil Premium in April 2011. The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to enhance the education of students entitled to free school meals, those who have ever been entitled to free school meals over the last 6 years, adopted or children looked after or children of parents in the armed forces/services. For the year 2017 to 2018 we have received £278,535. For more information about the Pupil Premium please follow this link:
Pupil Premium funding is being used in a number of ways to ensure that entitled students achieve their full potential, academically and emotionally. In addition to tailored academic support it is being targeted at participation in extra-curricular activities and some of the funding has been used to improve attendance and punctuality.
