Objectives for pupil premium funding at this school 

 

1. The Pupil Premium will be used to provide additional educational support to improve the progress and to raise the standard of achievement for these pupils.

2. The funding will be used to narrow and close the gap between the achievement of these pupils and their peers.

3. As far as its powers allow, the school will use the additional funding to address any underlying inequalities between children eligible for Pupils Premium and others.

4. We will ensure that the additional funding reaches the pupils who need it most and that it makes a significant impact on their education and lives.
