Pupil Premium is an additional sum of money given to schools for each child who qualifies for free school meals or has parents in the Armed Forces (Services).
The money is spent on providing those children with the same opportunities as those from more affluent backgrounds, ensuring that birth and social background do not hold young people back from achieving their potential. Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit but are accountable for how they have used it to close the educational gaps for vulnerable pupils.
From September 2012 schools are required to publish how they have used the Pupil Premium. Please click on the link below to download a copy of our Pupil Premium Strategy for the current academic year:
