2013 - 2014
During the financial year 2013 – 2014 we have so far received £97,040 of Pupil Premium funding from the Department for Education. The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for free school meals (FSM) in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months. Our aim is to use this grant to tackle inequality and provide direct support to our disadvantaged students who need it most.
A deputy headteacher has produced an action plan identifying students in each year group and how we will monitor progress against this action plan on a half termly basis.
