The Pupil Premium is additional funding given to schools so that they can support their disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers.
This money is allocated to schools based on the number of pupils who are eligible to Free School Meals (FSM).
The governors’ pupil premium policy can be found here.
Please read the reports below to see how this money was spent and the impact it has had on raising achievement for children who are eligible for pupil premium funding.
