The pupil premium is additional funding that is given to schools to address the inequalities between children eligible for free school meals and their peers.
The aim of the grant is to close the gap in both attainment and progress between those students eligible for pupil premium and their peers.
We assess the impact of the measures in place by termly data analysis and the use of a deprivation tracker. The Pupil Premium Strategy is reviewed during the Summer Term by the Senior Leadership Team.
Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see fit however school leaders are required to provide evidence of the impact of their Pupil Premium Grant (PPG) spending. This must be closely linked to improvements in pupil outcomes.
