Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium grant is paid to schools for the purpose of increasing the aspirations and attainment of students from disadvantaged backgrounds. 

The money the school receives is based on the students who are recorded as being eligible for Free School Meals in the last six years, who are ‘Looked After’ or who have a parent serving in the armed forces. Please visit our Pupil Premium page on the website.
