The pupil premium is additional funding given to publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap between them and their peers. We judge, throughout the year at pupil progress meetings, and with the publication of the RAISE Online report each autumn, whether we have been suceesful in achieving this aim.
- To ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all the pupils.
- In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils we recognise that not all pupils who receive free school meals will be socially disadvantaged.
- We also recognise that not all pupils who are socially disadvantaged are registered or qualify for free school meals.
