Pupil Premium

What is Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium is additional funding given to state funded schools to help raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils and to close the gap between them and their peers. National attainment figure show that students who have been eligible for Free School Meals at any point in their time at school tend to achieve lower grades than their peers. By careful use of Pupil Premium funding schools are able to raise the attainment of those eligible for Pupil Premium to the same level as their non-eligible peers.

How did we spend our Pupil Premium?

At The Swanage School  we believe that raising self-esteem is as important as direct assistance with numeracy and literacy. A happy, confident student, wearing their uniform with pride and able to participate fully in the life of the school, stands a greater chance  of high academic attainment.
