We also use the Pupil Premium Grant to fund a wide range of additional support in school. This may involve either small group work or one-to-one tuition and is one aspect of our drive to continually raise standards. The Pupil Premium Grant can be used to support children regardless of their ability.  If you claim this funding then we can allocate Pupil Premium Funding to provide additional opportunities and challenges for your child with the aim of enriching their educational experience at school in ways that best meet their individual needs.
