Impact of Pupil Premium Funding in our school.

In 2015 Rt Hon David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, wrote and asked us to support other schools in helping disadvantaged pupils.

 

"Your school's results for disadvantaged pupils in recent years show that you have expertise in making a difference with this too-often underperforming group. This clearly demonstrates that the future success of your pupils is very important to you and you share my determination to give our most disadvantaged children a better start in life."
