The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011 as a way to support our more vulnerable pupils, particularly those on free school meals and those who are ‘Looked After’, so that they can achieve increased success in their academic, personal and social development.  It is for each school to decide how the Pupil Premium is spent since each school is best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility.

From 2019, the Department for Education began comparing the outcomes of disadvantaged pupils with the outcomes of disadvantaged pupils nationally. This allows us to compare the outcomes of our disadvantaged pupils with similar pupils across the country and plan accordingly in terms of what we might look to do in the next academic year. 

The documents below provide information about how we have used the Pupil Premium in the previous year and how we intend to use them going forward to achieve such outcomes and how we intend to use it in the years ahead.
