What is the Pupil Premium?

The Pupil Premium provides additional funding on top of the main funding a school receives and is intended to help students from disadvantaged backgrounds to ‘close the gap’ through raising attainment and improving progress.

Currently 21% of our students at Wixams Academy receive pupil premium funding.


Who is eligible for PP funding?

Mr Downes is the member of staff in school who oversees the way in which we use this money. If you have any questions about this, please email him pdownes@wixamsacademy.co.uk

If you think you may be entitled to free school meals, please contact your local authority.


Mission statement:

“Our core purpose at Wixams Academy is to inspire and challenge all students to achieve exceptional things and to develop those key skills and qualities that will serve them throughout their lives.”
