Pupil Premium Funding

Pupil premium is government funding provided to schools to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gaps between them and their peers. It is to provide opportunities and experiences to improve the outcomes for those children.

At Brooklands we use the Pupil Premium to ensure that our most vulnerable children are given opportunities with additional support to enhance their development and educational attainment.

Full Strategy Statement available here
