The Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who may be vulnerable to possible underachievement. Please see our Strategy Statement about funding at the bottom of this page for more information about Pupil Premium Funding.
At Mundella School we spend this money to enable us to raise the achievement of funded pupils, whatever their academic starting point and potential. The targeted and strategic use of Pupil Premium supports us in achieving our overall vision: To be a school which promotes respect and healthy living where everyone feels valued and able to reach their full potential.
“It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools per Free School Meal pupil, is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility” DfE Website
