Pupil Premium is additional funding for schools to help address the underachievement of pupils due to deprivation. Pupils’ eligibility for Pupil Premium has been chosen as the best indicator of deprivation; in 2012-13 this was extended to include pupils who have been entitled to free school meal in the last six years. In addition, Looked after Children in local authority care and post care adopted children are also eligible for the Pupil Premium.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium in ways that they judge best to raise the attainment of the targeted groups of children. Schools must report annually on how it has been spent and on its impact. The attainment of these groups will be highlighted in school performance tables.
It is our vision that all students will have access to an exceptional education that each student with equal opportunities to achieve their full potential personally, academically and socially.
