About Us Pupil Premium

Publicly-funded schools in England get extra funding from the government to help them improve the attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. The pupil premium grant is designed to allow schools to help disadvantaged pupils by improving their progress and the exam results they achieve.

Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds:

  • generally face extra challenges in reaching their potential at school
  • often do not perform as well as their peers

Pupil Premium funding runs from April to April. Each year, the School publishes the planned spending for Pupil Premium funding and this can be found within this section of the website.  However, there is money available to help support students for things like trips, books, study guides, etc.  If you feel we could support you with funding for these, please contact our Pupil Premium Champion, Mrs Hardings on 01296 688264 or email
