It is the school’s responsibility to decide how the majority of Pupil Premium is spent and to ensure it is linked to targets based on the child’s educational attainment. We are required to report on how much pupil premium funding we received for this academic year, details of how we intend to spend the funding, including our reasons and evidence, details of how we spent the funding for the previous academic year and how it made a difference to the attainment of the pupils.
