What is the Pupil Premium?
The Pupil Premium was introduced by the Government in April 2011. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in raising the attainment of children who receive free school meals, children whose parents serve in the Armed Forces and those children in local authority care.
The funding is allocated to schools to spend as they think best, although there is a requirement to publish online how this money is spent. For more details on the Pupil Premium please visit:
Pupil Premium at Dovecotes Primary School
At Dovecotes Primary School we have high aspirations for all children in our care. We are committed to ensuring that each child achieves their full potential regardless of their starting points. We are determined that no child’s background, social or economic situation should be a barrier to their achievement, experiences and success.
Pupil premium funding, along with allocations made from the schools own budget, will help to ensure that this money is spent to the maximum effect.
