Pupil Premium 2016-17
The amount of Pupil Premium this academic year was £54,000. Due to the positive impact of measures put in place last year we intend to do similar things with the money this year. A large proportion of this money covers the salaries of staffing who are instrumental in supporting these disadvantaged pupils.
