Pupil Premium

" I conclude that the school has a good understanding of Pupil Premium funding and of the accountability of expenditure." External Pupil Premium Review October 2018
 
Disadvantaged pupils, disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs, receive good support. These pupils have carefully planned tasks that meet their specific needs. Support staff have a good understanding of how far they should provide direct help for pupils without doing too much for them. Ofsted June 2015
 
Current assessment information shows that disadvantaged pupils make the same good progress as their classmates in reading, writing and mathematics, and the gaps between their attainment and the others are narrowing in all subjects. Ofsted June 2015
