Pupil Premium – Statutory Information

Schools receive additional funding from the Department for Education (DfE) to support the needs of their most socio-economically deprived students.

  • Tracking and monitoring the progress of PP students.
  • Literacy and Numeracy intervention.
  • Targeted GCSE intervention.
  • Lead Teaching staff.
  • Coaching & mentoring programmes to support metacognition and self-regulation.
  • Attendance monitoring and intervention.
  • Cultural and social activities.
  • Support for parents and carers.
