Every year, each school receives funding from the government specifically for children who receive the Pupil Premium Grant. The amount of money we receive depends on how many children qualify and it changes across the year as children come and go.
We use these funds to make sure children who may be disadvantaged do not miss out and are able to do as well as their peers. Pupil Premium funding allows us to provide an equal and equitable learning experience for all of our children.
We have to report on how we plan to spend the funds (intended use) and the impact the funds from last year have had on pupils; this is done at the end of every academic year. In next year’s report we will be looking even more at how the grant impacted on children’s welfare, happiness and safety as well as their academic attainment.
