Pupil Premium and Other Premiums
GREAT ARLEY SCHOOL PUPIL PREMIUM
The Pupil Premium is national funding and is allocated along with the school budget. The purpose of this funding is to support the most vulnerable pupils in school with the aim of narrowing the attainment gap and raising the achievement of pupils who are disadvantaged.
At Great Arley School we also use this funding to impact on the additional barriers to learning which our pupils face and support activities, so that there are no inequalities between any groups of pupils within school.

The Impact of Participation in Sporting Events and Tournaments
- The experience develops social, emotional and physical learning for each student in each school team both individually and as a group.
