The Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant in April 2011. This grant, which is additional to the main Academy funding, is seen by Government as the best way to address the national inequalities between students eligible for free school meals (FSM), Looked After Children (LAC), service children and other students. The aim is to ensure that the funding reaches the students who need it most.
The Pupil Premium sum is clearly identified budget within the whole school funding. The school decides how Pupil Premium is spent as it is best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for each of the individual students eligible for the funding within the school.

In the summer of 2021 we held a Summer School for students who were joining us in September 2021. This was a huge success and it was a pleasure to see so many young people engaging with this initiative. A report of this event is available here.
