Pupil Premium

What is the Pupil Premium?

The pupil premium is an allocation of additional money provided to publicly funded schools in England to support specific groups of children who are vunerable to possible underachievement. The grant is provided to raise the attainment of these eligible children and close the gap between them and their peers.

Boughton Heath Academy places a great deal of focus on supporting children who qualify for the pupil premium grant. We want to ensure that these children have the opportunity to benefit from all that our school has to offer, resulting in them achieving the greatest possible outcome for their future.
