Pupil Premium


At Bishop Perowne CE College we strongly believe that all our students should have an equal entitlement and opportunity to a wealth of experiences which develop their skills and abilities, build their confidence and resilience and also prepare them for a happy and successful life beyond their time at our school.

It is our aim to ensure that all students, irrespective of their social or financial background, should thrive and share our passion to ‘Endeavour Forever’.

The government allocates additional money to our school called ‘Pupil Premium’ to help us improve the outcomes for students who:

  • are currently eligible for free school meals
  • have been eligible for free school meals in the last 6 years
  • those who have been a ‘looked after child’
  • have a parent serving in the armed forces.

We use this funding as effectively as possible to improve the achievement of all students who may be disadvantaged.

The purpose of the grant is to provide additional support to eligible students in order to reduce inequalities and narrow the gap in attainment between those students and their peers. Schools themselves can determine how they spend the funding, which best meets the needs of their students. Our vision goes beyond just narrowing this gap and we are determined to ensure that all students, irrelevant of background or prior attainment, have the qualifications and attributes necessary to succeed and reach their full potential.

Our plans in relation to Pupil Premium Funding, and the subsequent reviews, are available at the end of this page.
