Pupil Premium is a fund provided by the Department for Education (DfE) for publicly funded schools in England. The fund is used to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students and close the gap between them and their peers. Funding is provided for each student registered as eligible for free school meals at any point in the last 6 years.
We have produced a pupil premium strategy which outlines how we intend to use the funding that we have been allocated this year as well as the impact that last year’s payment has had within our school. Included in this years’ funding is a recovery premium which has been allocated by the DfE to help young people in England catch up on lost learning due to the pandemic.
