Leaders use the pupil premium grant well. Extra-curricular activities include literacy and numeracy ‘catch-up’ alongside GCSE exam preparation. These activities provide pupils with the opportunity to target and overcome gaps in learning. (Ofsted ’17)

Use of Pupil Premium funding at IES Breckland

The Pupil Premium is designed to ensure that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the students who need it most.

The Pupil Premium has a number of wider aims:

  • to increase social mobility;
  • to enable more students from disadvantaged backgrounds to get to the top universities;
  • to reduce the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving students nationally.
