Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011. It is additional funding intended to help raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and 'close the gap' between them and their peers.
Ofsted’s school inspections report on the attainment and progress of disadvantaged pupils who attract the Pupil Premium. Schools must publish details of how they spend the funding as well as the effect it has had on the attainment of those pupils that attract it.
Below are our current and previous Pupil Premium Strategy statements which explain how the funding is being spent and what impact this will have on the children that are eligible for free school meals:
