The Pupil Premium is an additional source of funding provided to schools to support the raising of achievement for deprived children, a group recognised nationally as vulnerable to underperformance at school. The funding is calculated by measuring the number of students receiving Free School Meals (FSM) in the last 6 years (‘Ever 6’).
The research to date suggests that schools can make a significant difference to the achievement of these pupils. As a new school, there are exciting opportunities for us to maximise this funding for these pupils. We are committed to ensuring that all pupils make good progress regardless of their starting point and background. We are working towards ensuring that all pupils who attend the school are in the best position to go to top university, have the opportunity to choose to lead a fulfilling life and make a difference in society. Our Pupil Premium Strategy is guided by the philosophy.
