Willow Tree Primary Pupil Premium 2015-16

We are required to report on the school website the amount of the school’s allocation from the pupil premium grant in respect of the current academic year; details of how it is intended that the allocation will be or has been spent; details of how the previous year’s allocation was spent, and the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils at the school in respect of whom grant funding was allocated.

 

The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) or who are in the care of the local authority and their peers, by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
