Summary of Pupil Premium Spending 2015/16

The key objective to spending our pupil premium grant is:

Raising attainment and achievement of pupils to at least expected progress and ensuring that the gap between their performance and other’s in the school and nationally is closed.  The pupil premium fund is provided to raise the aspirations of children from disadvantaged backgrounds and give them more equal access to opportunities which do so. Our funding is therefore not only spent on providing additional academic support but on giving children the chance to participate in extra- curricular activities which may develop further strengths, talents or interests.
