What is Pupil Premium funding for? Pupil Premium funding is allocated to schools to use in whatever way they deem best to support children who are, or have been, on Free School Meals, are Looked After children, have been adopted from LA Care, or have parent(s) in the armed forces.

Aims of Pupil Premium funding 1) To support the above children in social skills, academic progress or any other way that is necessary 2) To support families in a monetary way if this helps with the aims of 1) 3) To close the gap in academic achievement between PP children and the rest of the cohort.

How the grant will be used in 2015-2016:

When making decisions about the pupil premium funding it is important to consider the context of the school and the subsequent challenges the schools and pupils face. Through targeted interventions we are working to eliminate the barriers to learning and progress. For pupils who start with lower starting points our aim is to ensure that they make accelerated learning in order to reach their potential and/ or their age related expectation.
