Pupil Premium

Narrowing the gap.

The Pupil Premium is a Government initiative that directs additional money towards pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds for whom research shows as being susceptible to under-performing pupils when benchmarked against non-disadvantaged backgrounds. The Pupil Premium is provided to support these children in achieving their potential.

At Appledore School pupils in receipt of the Pupil Premium are prioritised to ‘narrow the gap’ in attainment and progress and in support of meeting their social and emotional needs.

Whilst the Government does not dictate how to use this funding, it does require schools to spend the money effectively ensures that schools are accountable for their spending of the Pupil Premium to narrow any existing gaps.
