Pupil Premium and PE and Sports Premium - mainstream and special schools

Schools can make their own decisions on how to spend their Pupil Premium funding, but it has become increasingly apparent that a school will not receive a positive Ofsted judgement, unless they can demonstrate they are focused on improving outcomes for eligible pupils and show a definite commitment to closing the attainment gap, even if the proportion of disadvantaged pupils in the school is very small.
