Disadvantaged Pupil Funding

The purpose of Disadvantaged funding

At Purbrook Park School, our school ethos is ‘Enjoy, Enrich, Excel’. This applies to all pupils, regardless of prior attainment, ethnicity, gender or economic background. We have the highest expectations of every pupil that steps over our threshold, and we work to ensure that all pupils, particularly those who are most disadvantaged, have the tools to achieve anything they wish.

However, we must appreciate that not all pupils have the same starting points, and barriers exist that, unless mitigated against, can cause gaps in attainment. The purpose of this strategy is to outline how, as a school, we will work towards breaking down these barriers, and ensure that our vulnerable pupils are presented with the same opportunities to achieve well.

This year, we are pleased to publish our Disadvantaged Pupil Strategy. This three-year plan details our school's ambitious aims to close the gap between Disadvantaged and Non-Disadvantaged pupils. At the core of this strategy is pupil progress.

Included in this plan is how we intend to spend our Covid-19 Recovery Premium.
