IMPACT

IMPACT   to date

Through effective use of the Pupil Premium   Funding, ‘disadvantaged learners’ have continued to make good rates of   progress. The gap between the standards achieved by FSM learners and non-FSM   learners continues to narrow. This is reflected in the 2013-2014 end of year   data which demonstrates a significant reduction in the standards gap from   2012-2013.
