Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium spending Foxhole Learning Academy

What is the purpose of the Pupil Premium and how do we benefit as a school?

The Pupil Premium is a grant that schools receive from central government which is to be used for the purpose of improving the achievement and life chances of socially disadvantaged pupils. We know from national data that this group of pupils underachieves at every stage from 5 to 16 years when compared with other pupils.

Our Pupil Premium Strategy document for 2021-2024 (see below) shows you how we are spending the grant in ways that will help to ensure that socially disadvantaged pupils fulfil their potential and do at least as well as their non-disadvantaged peers with similar starting points.
