The Pupil Premium is an additional funding provision by the Department of Education to help alleviate some of the disadvantages affecting some students as a consequence of wider inequalities in our society. Schools are required to publish online how their premium is used.
We are pleased to report that the progress of our disadvantaged students consistently make better progress than the national average for disadvantaged students and that for two of the last three years our disadvantaged students have been in the top 25% of schools nationally for progress
The need to continue to maintain and build on our successes in “closing the gap” is a key priority in the school development plan and is an area of focus throughout the school curriculum. The pupil premium funding we receive helps support the initiatives, programmes and systems that we employ to help establish equability of opportunity for all students at Highgate Wood School.
