  Objectives of Pupil Premium expenditure

Our key objective in using the Pupil Premium Grant is to reduce the gap in attainment between pupil groups. As a school. Our data indicates that we are very effective in narrowing these gaps, ensuring that our pupils make good progress.

Through the use of a range of targeted interventions, we are working to eliminate barriers to learning and progress. This grant is also used for any more able children who are in receipt of free school means to ensure that their attainment and progress are as good as possible. It also gives equality of extracurricular opportunity with access to clubs and Pre/ After school care.
