All students are entitled to a high quality education. However, this is particularly important for students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Such students often do not need something different to other students, but they will benefit all the more from expert teaching, enriching experiences and support. The success of our school improvement efforts is evident in the impact it has on the most disadvantaged students.

How Service pupil premium differs from the pupil premium
The SPP is there for schools to provide mainly pastoral support for service children, whereas the pupil premium (PP) was introduced to raise attainment and accelerate progress within disadvantaged groups.
