What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is a Government grant given to all schools and academies for those students who:

      • are currently eligible for free school meals
      • have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years
      • ‘looked after children’, or those who have been a ‘looked after child’
      • have a parent serving in the armed forces

The purpose of the grant is to provide additional support to eligible students in order to reduce inequalities and narrow the gap in attainment between those students and their peers. Schools themselves can determine how they spend the funding, which best meets the needs of their students.


Our vision goes beyond just narrowing this gap and we are determined to ensure that all students, irrelevant of background or prior attainment, have the qualifications and attributes necessary to succeed and reach their full potential.
