Introduced in April 2011, the Pupil Premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged students of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

It is designed to ensure that funding can reach the students who need it most and at Wetherby High School we are committed to ensuring every student can reach their full potential.
