Pupil Premium

Narrowing the gap.

The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that directs additional money towards pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, which research shows under-perform pupils from non-disadvantaged backgrounds.  The Pupil Premium is provided to support these children in achieving their potential.

The Government uses receipt of Free School Meals as an indicator of need for those eligible for Pupil Premium funding and provideds an additional fixed amount of money per pupil.  At Appledore School pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium are prioritised to 'narrow the gap' in attainment and progress.

Whilst the Government does not dictate how to use this funding, it does require schools to spend the money effectively ensures that schools are accountable for their spending of the Pupil Premium to narrow any existing gaps.
