Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium is additional funding provided to all schools for pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds. At Woolwich Polytechnic for Girls we ensure this funding is used effectively to ensure our pupils make exceptional progress.

The purpose of the Pupil Premium is to improve attainment for disadvantaged learners. The funding should be used to ensure these pupils receive consistently excellent teaching.
