Overview of Pupil Premium Funding
The Department for Education (DfE) provides additional funding, known as Pupil Premium, in order that specific groups of pupils aged between 5 and 16 years, can be supported in their progress and attainment.
The pupil premium funding is not necessarily intended to be specifically allocated to individual pupils and school have the freedom to decide how it can best be spent on eligible pupils. The impact of individual sums may be limited, therefore at Westhaven we have pooled much of the allocated monies to maximise the impact on the pupils’ progress and attainment and wider curricular experiences.
50 pupils this year are classified under our PP indicator and receive Pupil Premium or Pupil Premium Plus funding.
