The pupil premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used.
All of our children who are entitled to the Pupil Premium grant have an individual funding plan which details the tailored strategies used to develop both academically, creatively, emotionally, socially, and physically.
