Pupil Premium

Pupil Premium

At Bishop Vesey’s Grammar school we are committed to delivering inspiration and excellence for all of our students, irrespective of background. We use our Pupil Premium Funding to support students from less advantaged backgrounds, to ensure all of our learners have the opportunity to participate fully with our curricular and extra-curricular provision. We are committed to high quality teaching and targeted support for academic progress, attendance, behaviour and social and emotional well-being. In addition our students take part in a range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities including sports, music and culture. Through the Vesey experience, we want all of our students to develop excellent character and be responsible global citizens, who will make the world a better place through their kindness, thoughtfulness, confidence and resilience.


Full details about how we use Pupil Premium Funding can be found in our Pupil Premium Strategy on the Statutory Information and Policies part of the website.
