Pupil Premium Funding

What is Pupil Premium?

Pupil Premium is funding allocated to schools by the Department of Education to increase social mobility and reduce the gap in performance between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their peers.  Its purpose is to raise attainment, accelerate progress and fulfil the achievement potential of all children.  Schools receive funding for each disadvantaged pupil and can use the funding flexibly, in the best interests of eligible pupils.  It is up to the school to decide how to spend the Pupil Premium funding because they are best placed to assess what additional education provision should be put in place to ensure maximum progress for all children in their care.  All schools will be held accountable for how they have used the Pupil Premium funding and the impact it has had on the children's learning.
GLF's Aspiration for All children to Grow, Learn and Flourish
All GLF Schools are committed to our core remit of providing an outstanding educational experience.  Raising the attainment of disadvantaged pupils is part of our commitment to help all pupils achieve their full potential.
We aim for:
  • All children to enjoy their learning, attain high outcomes and be helped to be confident individuals and responsible citizens whilst making excellent progress in all aspects;
  • All children to benefit from an inclusive ethos, excellent teaching and a broad and balanced curriculum underpinned by strong leadership, in a local school;
  • All children to be supported and encouraged to lead healthy and active lives developing the legacy of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games
