The Peak Academy About Us

Pupil Premium


Our school receives the pupil premium from the government. This funding is granted to the school in order to support those children who are entitled to free school meals or who in the last six years have had entitlement to free school meals. Here is the outlay of the pupil premium spending for our school, together with the impact we feel it will have on the children.

Pupil Premium

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England. It’s designed to help disadvantaged pupils of all abilities perform better, and close the gap between them and their peers. In the tables below, you will find information about how The Peak Academy spent last year's pupil premium funding and the budget for this year.
