Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium (PP) was introduced to provide schools with targeted funding for those most in need of support. Through its use, the ultimate aim is to ‘Close the Gap’ between all young people so that success and achievement are not determined by background, and every child achieves to the best of their ability. 


Schools receive £935 for each (Years 7 to 11) pupil registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years. The school also receives £300 for each pupil registered for ‘Service Premium’ - designed to support children with parents serving in the regular British armed forces.
