Pupil Premium was introduced by the government in April 2011 to raise the attainment for disadvantaged pupils and to ensure they benefit from the same opportunities as all children.
There are three categories of children who qualify for pupil premium.
- Children who have been eligible for free school meals over the past 6 years
- Looked After Children
- Armed Forces Children
Every academy and school can select how they choose to use their Pupil Premium allocation, as they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for students. Every school needs to be held accountable for how this money is spent, which is why we make details of how it is used available on our website.
Below you can download information about how we used our Pupil Premium allocation last year and the impact it had on our pupils. You can also download our strategy for 2019-2020 which details how much money we expect to receive this year and how we plan to use it.
