In April 2011 the Government introduced the Pupil Premium Grant to provide additional funding to support disadvantaged pupils and close the attainment gap between them and their peers. Every pupil in receipt of free school meals in the last 6 years, Looked after Children and those children whose parents are currently serving in the armed forces also attract the grant.
Schools have the freedom to spend the Pupil Premium, which is additional to the underlying schools budget, in a way they think will best support the raising of attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
Below you will find Bishop Ramsey's Policy some Case Studies and our Strategy Document which includes an overview of spending in the last academic year.
The results of Pupil Premium students for the summer examinations 2017 are positive. This section will be updated following the release of validated Progress 8 data in the new year.
