Pupil Premium is extra funding provided by the Government to benefit pupils that are currently eligible, or have ever been eligible for FSM (Ever 6) as well as those who have ever been in care. Funding is also received for pupils that have a parent in H.M. Forces.
Our aim is to improve the outcomes and participation rates for this group of pupils. We aim to motivate and actively engage pupils in their own learning and progress.
