Every year, our school receives additional funding from the government to support children with their learning. This is called the Pupil Premium Grant.
In 2011, the government introduced this funding to help some children develop their language and communication skills, their English and Maths understanding, confidence, attendance and punctuality.
This is so that all children have the opportunity to learn and be successful.
