The Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers. Schools are free to decide how to allocate this funding to best support the raising attainment for the most vulnerable pupils.
At St Mark’s School the percentage of pupils eligible for free school meals has increased somewhat over the past three years and is now well above the national average.
