Pupil and Sports Premium

The aim of the government’s Pupil Premium is to raise achievement among disadvantaged pupils, diminishing the difference between them and their peers. The funding was introduced in April 2011 and is targeted at pupils aged 4-16, from low income families who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM) or any Looked After Children (LAC). Pupil Premium funding also extends to children of service personal.

The wider aims are:

- To develop cultural capital to increase social mobility

- To enable more pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to reach their potential and go on to further education.

- To reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils.

- To support children’s self -confidence, motivation and overall well-being.
