Pupil premium is funding to improve education outcomes for disadvantaged pupils in schools in England. Evidence shows that disadvantaged children generally face additional challenges in reaching their potential at school and often do not perform as well as other pupils.
As a school we want all pupils to reach their full potential and we have allocated our pupil premium funding accordingly.
