Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government that targets extra funding at children from deprived backgrounds.

This is based on research that shows these children are at risk of underachieving.  The money will be used to narrow the gap between them and their peers and help them to reach their full potential.
