Key Principles relating to the Pupil Premium Grant
All pupils are equally valued and the teaching and learning opportunities meet the needs of all our pupils whatever their social disadvantage.
In making provision for socially disadvantaged pupils, we recognise that not all pupils who receive FSM will be socially disadvantaged. We also recognise that not all students who are socially disadvantaged qualify for FSM.
