Pupil Premium

Notre Dame Pupil Premium

Notre Dame has been allocated £240,547 of pupil premium funding for the academic year 2023-24.

Pupil Premium is additional funding to the main school budget and is entirely focused on improving the progress of students in receipt of free school meals, students who have a parent in the armed forces and those who are in care.

School leaders choose how best to spend this funding in an integrated way to ensure that entitled students have access to additional support to enable them to reach their potential. The budget allows students to have full access to the curriculum whilst aiming to close the gap between those who are eligible for pupil premium and those who are not.
