Statutory Information - Literacy/Numeracy Catch Up Funding Information
What is Pupil Premium (PP) funding?
The government introduced pupil premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally and enabling more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to attend top universities.
The impact of funding for individual students will be closely monitored and evaluated and a report will be provided at the end of each academic year. Please view our latest reports below.
