 Our Principles

  • To ensure that teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs for all our pupils.
  • To ensure that appropriate provision is made for pupils who belong to vulnerable groups; this includes assessing and addressing the needs of socially disadvantaged pupils and of children with high mobility.
  • Pupil premium funding will be allocated following a needs analysis which will identify priority needs.  Allocation of funding and resources will vary according to those needs.
