Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. In 2012–13 schools were allocated a total of £1.25 billion funding for 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. From 2018 the Pupil premium will also include funding for post looked after children, for example children who have left care subject to an Adoption Order, a Special Guardianship Order or a Child Arrangement Order. The aim of the funding is to provide disadvantaged students with opportunities to develop their confidence, social skills and ultimately to improve their attainment. Pupil premium funding is ring fenced and you will find a comprehensive review of funding (2020-21) and intended actions for funding (2021-22) below.  

We believe that the high expectations we have of all our students, the great importance placed on standards of behaviour, and the quality of teaching and learning, together with a strong partnership with parents and carers, are key contributors to our success. Similarly, a differentiated and varied curriculum which takes account of the needs and interests of learners enables all students to progress onto meaningful pathways. We strongly believe that it is not about where you come from but your passion and thirst for knowledge, and your dedication and commitment to learning that make the difference between success and failure, and we are determined to ensure that our students are given every chance to realise their full potential.
