Pupil Premium & Catch-up Premium

What is Pupil Premium?

Introduced in 2011, the pupil premium is a sum of money given to schools each year by the Government to improve the attainment of disadvantaged children.

This is based on research showing that children from low income families perform less well at school than their peers.

Often, children who are entitled to pupil premium face challenges such as poor language and communication skills, lack of confidence and issues with attendance and punctuality. The pupil premium is intended to directly benefit the children who are eligible, helping to narrow the gap between them and their classmates.

The Covid catch-up premium was introduced to help schools provide additional support to students follow the pandemic.  You can see full details of our expenditure below, which has been merged with our Pupil Premium expenditure.
