Background and Objectives

Pupil premium grant was introduced by the Department for Education (DfE) from April 2011. It is provided with the aim of addressing underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and those financially better off. It is for Wapping High School to decide how to use the money in order to raise the levels of attainment of disadvantaged pupils. Specifically the school aims to :


·         Ensure that all pupils from vulnerable groups have the opportunity to succeed through additional interventions

·         Provide targeted support to improve the attainment and life chances of disadvantaged pupils

·         Ensure the gap in attainment between Free School Meal (FSM) and non FSM students is reduced


The School aims are to ‘Raise Aspirations, Broaden Horizons and Improve Student Outcomes’.

Wapping High School puts these core values at the heart of all its work, including the allocation of the extra funding to ensure that disadvantaged students will benefit to achieve these aims.
