Pupil Premium

It has been well known for many years that children in receipt of free school meals tend to do significantly less well in their GCSE examinations than children who do not receive free school meals. In order to help children in receipt of free school meals do better the Government allocates £900 for each child in receipt of free school meals to their school.

 

Schools are required to use this money to "narrow the gap" between the achievement of children in receipt of free school meals, and those that are not.
