The use of pupil premium and impact on attainment
Pupil Premium funding was introduced in April 2011. Since then we have ensured that the funding has been used to raise the attainment of our eligible pupils. We are very proud of our successes in narrowing the gap between those children who receive the funding and those that do not.
At Suffolks our ultimate aim is to remove this gap all together and to enable our most disadvantaged pupils to achieve the best possible outcomes.
As we are committed to this aim we regularly undertake a thorough review of this spending.
You will now be able to read our new 'Pupil Premium Policy' which outlines our rationale for the spending as well as describing the key roles of members of our school community in ensuring that the funding achieves our ultimate aim.

Since 2011 the funding has been used in a variety of ways but has stayed focused on our four key drivers for improvement.
- Improving attendance
- Raising standards in reading, writing and maths
- Improving learning behaviour and well being
- Improving parental involvement in children's learning
