Pupil & Sport Premium
The Pupil Premium grant is additional funding, to help raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to help diminish the difference between them and their peers. The funding is allocated to schools on the basis of the number of students on roll, known to be currently eligible for free school meals or have been eligible within the last 6 years, as well as pupils who have been looked after by the Local Authority.
