Pupil Premium and Sports Grant Expenditure

At Longwood we strive to break the link between family income and educational achievement, ensuring that children from all backgrounds can fulfil their potential and make the most of their talents. We work hard to provide all our pupils including those disadvantaged with a good start in life and prepare them well for secondary school.

Pupil Premium was introduced in April 2011 to tackle ‘educational inequality’ by raising achievement and improving outcomes for children from low-income families who are eligible for free school meals; also pupils in care and those from families with parents in the Armed Forces. The additional funding is made available to schools to help them narrow the attainment gap that still exists between pupils from disadvantaged and more affluent backgrounds.
