Disadvantaged PupilsIncluding Use of The Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is a type of funding which was first introduced in April 2011. The school receives the Pupil Premium each financial year from the DfE, with the amount received determined by the number of students receiving free school meals (FSM), who are looked after or adopted from care. The funding is provided to ensure that these students are not disadvantaged in any way. The school's current strategy statement is attached below.
