Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England.

It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better and close the gap between them and their peers.

Summary of the main barriers faced by eligible students

The barriers and challenges disadvantaged students may face at school can be complex and varied; there is no single difficulty faced by all.

We have identified the following to be barriers for our disadvantaged students:

  • Literacy levels
  • Interpersonal relationships with staff and students
  • Aspirations
  • Metacognition

We aim to secure excellent achievement for those students who are eligible for the pupil premium funding.
