Pupil Premium 2015-16

Our allocation for the 2015 - 16 financial year is �330,000. The funding is carefully ring-fenced so that it is spent on the specific pupils intended, regardless of their attainment levels. We also operate on an inclusive basis which means that all pupils, irrespective of whether they receive additional funding, have access to initiatives and provisions in order to maximise attainment across the whole school population.
