How can Pupil Premium be spent?


Headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the Pupil Premium to meet the particular needs of their disadvantaged pupils, and will also be held accountable for the difference it makes. 

At Romsey Primary School & Nursery, we monitor the progress and attainment of all children along with particular groups so that we can adjust our curriculum and provision to raise standards.
