Pupil Premium

In 2011 the Government announced the introduction of Pupil Premium funding to support policies directed at disadvantaged pupils. This additional funding is provided to:

  • Raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and close the gap with their peers.
  • Support children and young people with parents in the regular armed forces.

For the academic year 2021-22 the grants received per pupil are as follows:
