The Pupil Premium

At Bythams we support all our children. We do this by providing high quality teaching supplemented by interventions to support vulnerable learners when needed. The impact of this high quality teaching and intervention work for each child is then monitored through termly pupil progress meetings.

The Government introduced a Pupil Premium with the aim of increasing social mobility, reducing the attainment gap between the highest and lowest achieving pupils nationally. The Government requires us report to you on how our Pupil Premium has been spent.
