Pupil Premium







The Pupil Premium is funding allocated to children who are currently known to:

Be eligible for free school meals, or 

Have parents in the armed forces, or

Be in care (Looked After Child)


This funding must be used to further the education and social skills of identified children.

Ash Hill Academy is proud of the impact that this funding has had on the personal, social and emotional development of these students, as well as their attainment.
